Prolific Vancouver-based singer/composer Ian William Craig returns with a gorgeous new LP of material commissioned to soundtrack the computer game »Magnesium 173«. Whilst functioning as a score, »Music for Magnesium 173« is far from being a set of short cues cues or lesser material.
Released on double vinyl and digital formats, the record comprises a set of twelve bold and immersive pieces – the majority clocking in between 5-10 minutes. These are anything but passive or reserved background sound-beds though; possessing a genuine weight and power, ‘it offers another tour de force display of Craig’s peerless power as an improvising composer able to summon and shape the sublime via an arsenal of modified tape machinery, electronics and his own gorgeous voice, with the results forging a unique kind of choral-based, heavily-abrasive take on ambient composition.
