It All Falls Apart
Customers who bought this item also bought
2010 release from the Seattle based artist. The Sight Below's debut full-length Glider (2008) established the reclusive artist's singular sound a haze of treated guitar, a steady Electronic pulse, and little else and his similarly gloomy visual aesthetic. In the year since Glider's release, The Sight Below honed his craft and traveled the world, toting his equipment to distant cities and festivals, playing breathtaking audio/visual performances, and wandering off into the night. Evidently, this was time well-spent. With It All Falls Apart, The Sight Below expands upon his strengths at every turn, crafting a paean to impermanence, an ambient meditation that uses the sounds of sadness in the service of sweet emotional catharsis. Seven tracks.

It All Falls Apart is an expansion of ideas explored previously on Glider and The Sight Below's EPs. There is more variation in the sounds & moods produced, and the middle ground between minimal techno and floating ambiance is explored - though, perhaps, not as fully as it might someday be. There are even some vocals on the album, which while not entirely successful in my book, at the very least signal a commitment to exploration and evolution.
This type of music is not for everyone - in fact, it's probably not for most. But for those who enjoy ambient music - fans of some of the bigger names such as Eno, Tim Hecker, Gas, Fennesz - It All Falls Apart (as well as The Sight Below's other albums) won't disappoint.
Very highly recommended, and a must-buy for fans of Echospace Detroit releases.
