The latest installment in the Folklore Tapes canon sees the collective cast its gaze skyward - to the glittering orbs that steal their way silently across our night sky.
Ethereal Transects is a compilation album and booklet exploring the lore of celestial objects through experiments in sound and vision. Each contributor has researched a particular orb and - inspired by the tapestry of its myth and legend - fashioned an original soundscape in its likeness. The result is an audio voyage around the observable universe, stopping off at its well known land- marks - the Sun and Moon, Mercury and Venus, Mars and Jupiter, and on fur- ther, to Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Accompanying us on the trip are the voices of ages past, who whisper strange-nothings in our ears about the sights we see as we traverse the inky black.
The project is presented as a ten track LP and 24 page booklet, The booklet includes research notes and artwork by the contributing artists, as well as an original 10 page essay by Jez Winship.
