Image As a conceptually and symbolically based principle, Solipsism suggests an intensive subjective experience in relationship to the primordial self. From an empirical-musical angle the side project from Craig Murphy perfectly illustrates the intrinsic characteristic of sound, related to a perceptual phenomenon and thus orientated to a meaningful dialogue between the solipsist subject (imagination, creation and inner feelings) and the world (experienced, embodied…). The leading musical arguments are focused on a topology of buzzing drone textures, heavily processed electronics and moving micro-tonal harmonious guitar tones. Published by the dynamic and independent Herb Recordings Weaving spiders can be appreciated as an experimental lysergic ambient effort.

There is a great emphasis on timbre and depth in the living compositional organism throughout the album. Far to be monolithic and massively minimalist, the content is incredibly active and divinely evocative. Each soundscape is sustained by luminously hypnotic guitar chords in relation to a gorgeously cinematic direction. The result is not so far from mesmeric-buzzing drone and guitar based efforts from Aidan Baker, Troum or Tim Hecker but here the emphasis is put on emotions, colors, light and forms with a taste for elaborate psychoacoustic effects. All the semantic-musical ingredients make this opus quite unique.

Weaving spiders is a magnificent and sonically meditative sound experience, colorfully ritualistic, spherical and deeply absorbing. The music takes advantages to visual-perceptual forms, tonal clusters which activate a discreet dialogue between the subjective memory of the listener and the complex sound environment. No mistake and perfectly achieved emotional based drone release. Absolutely recommended and possibly a timeless release.

Weaving spiders is available in October.
