after albums on Onmyōdō Cassette, Polar Seas Recordings, and Pyramid Blood, Molecular Shrine is yet another stunning album that Endurance is releasing in 2017. here, the Canadian Japan-based producer and bio-ethics researcher muses on "the bridging of the micro and macro, from the fine details to the whole, from the pin drop to the colossus roar..."
musically, collections of minimal flutters, gentle melodies and subtle field recordings converge to form breathtaking and powerful soundscapes - immersive, abstract waves of sound, equally minimal and complex. this is music that can be dissected and observed closely, or it can be enjoyed with detachment, absorbed purely as a whole - attempting both over multiple listens is recommended.
released August 10, 2017
