Aaron Martin – Chapel Floor


Aaron Martin‘s Chapel Floor is a kind of a release that just gets released silently and modestly on a cassette and kinda stays in the distance, hiding the sound world contained within. Featuring an artwork that would rather fit a sci-fi novel collection, it’s a raw take on slow, droning modern classical minimalism, as filtered by the nostalgic take on the American midwest. Cello, synths and church organs are played in a series of slowly ascending and descending meditations on life and death. There’s something strangely Kubrickian about that cover. Something Ultimate. And a piece of that Ultimate is present in Aaron Martin’s music. A piece of the Ultimate many will miss. Maybe you’ll miss it, too. Maybe not.
