New: The Mammoth Dreamscape Soundclub

A new series of sound by way of the asterisk project, the Mammoth Dreamscape Soundclub is born from years of passing time by layering loops in empty warehouses.

These are meant to be unending experiments, a collection of clipped compositions that play in asynchronous harmony. The process is a slow build of mood & reaction, worked into endless cycles of sound. At its best, when everything works, the result is a work that is always shifting, yet still familiar. It can be passive listening as much as a point of focus.

The first release, “Something I Forgot To Write Down,” is meant to be a simple introduction. While a prominent guitar line dominates, a variety of ambient sounds hover behind it throughout the 40-minute plot. The follow-up, “The Broken Arms of Time in an Age of Death,” is a slightly longer, slightly darker film-inspired sequel of sorts.

This music is constructed to be adaptable—with these & the coming releases, I hope people can find a way that it can help somehow.
