AUDIO: House of the Maker & Scott Lawlor – “And I fell Into Darkness and Foul Dreams”
House of the Maker is one of Joseph Mlodik’s many ambient wizardry projects; he primarily focuses on nature and field recordings here. His latest album from HotM is a collaboration with Scott Lawlor, and it’s a two-hour escapade through the densest of forests and planes uninhabited by mankind. Featuring samples of birds of rain, some parts are laden with awestruck optimism while others have inexplicable terror. It’s music for the hours between pitch black dusk and waking dawn, so be sure to put this record on for your hypnagogic state. We hope to hear more from Joseph Mlodik and his various approaches to experimental music soon.
