Richard Skelton – Rapture (Reprise)

Rapture (Reprise), the third and final part in Richard Skelton’s series of compositions documenting the Yorkshire landscape, Landings, was released yesterday. It’s an immensely hypnotic piece of music, washing over you in waves of creaking, bowed strings, haunting, decayed field recordings and creeping, crackling surges of analogue noise; like being immersed in the opaque fluid of someone’s half-forgotten memories.

If you’re not already familiar with this fantastically gifted, visionary sound artist (whose work has also come under the names of Clouwbeck, *AR, A Broken Consort, Carousell and Riftmusic) then we’d highly recommend that you use this release as a starting point to check him out. Luckily, the wonderful people at Aeolian have compiled all three releases into one and uploaded them to Bandcamp – here for you to enjoy in their entirety.
