The Beige Channel – Palace of Gathered Elegance

August 16, 2010

The Beige Channel - The Palace of Gathered EleganceOne of the albums that is getting a lot of play in the internet is Mensa’s Moorland which is deservedly so. Heck, I even finally wrote about it the other day. The Beige Channel‘s The Palace of Gathered Elegance (Cyclene) is a similar album, though a bit more personal and equally as good. In the liner notes, Michael Farley aka The Beige Channel writes:

In August of 2009, our family traveled to Beijing, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong while on our second adoption journey. I made field recordings along the way. During the fall, I edited, layered, mixed and processed portions of the recordings for these 9 compositions.

The field recordings combined with the electronic manipulations  (as well as some electric guitar) make this record somber but always interesting. Don’t let this one slip by.
