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.
"The record moves seamlessly between airy, light compositions and more dense, vibrational atmospheres to drift away to." - Bandcamp Daily
"...Molecular Shrine is a warm vibrant set of minimal flutings and flutterings, subtle melodics and field recordings blended into rich particulate textures layered into shimmering colorfields. A musing on ‘the bridging of the micro and macro, from the fine details to the whole, from the pin drop to the colossus roar,’ incorporating stylistic strands from electroacoustic to drone to post-classical, buried melodies emerging, imbued with affect." - Igloo Magazine
"Endurance’s “Molecular Shrine” offers a shimmering universe of color." - Beach Sloth
"...Molecular Shrine, a new work from Stefane that dropped on Friday, is a terrific example of how compelling minimalist ambient music can be. Sometimes the best chord an artist can strike is a sustained one." - Badd Press
