Night Of Oblivion

by Blanket Swimming

subscriber exclusive


The tracks that comprise Night Of Oblivion were produced simultaneously with the Crepuscular EP. The original intent was to intersperse the pieces among the Crepuscule tracks, creating a sort of back/forth dialog between these varying, dark pieces. However, after many failed attempts at creating cohesion between the two things, I decided to split the 11 tracks into two conceptual and concise EPs.

While the tracks on Crepuscular solely use source from Onlooker (2014) by my old post-rock band, The Empty Handed Painters, the Night Of Oblivion pieces were composed in real time using a singing bowl, AM/FM radio, tape deck, synthesizer, and guitar pedals. The result is dim-lit, drifting and drab. A proper expression of the Night.
