Constantine – Hades

[ Bedouin Records, 2017 ]

A massive, dark wave rises over the horizon on the debut LP by the Greek composer Constantine Skourlis. Named after the mythological underworld, with track names such as “Cosmos” or “Emptiness”, it wants to describe something epic and beyond our grasp. The first three tracks seem to come straight from the Void: endless reverb and doomy strings emulate a gargantuan cavern create an atmosphere of being lost in the vastness of space, the final track, “Erebus”, appropriates Tim Hecker with noisy, destroyed comptuer textures corroding on top of thickly layered, yet airy pianos. An experiential, cleansing experience. Recommended to listen to with headphones on.
