Absolutely beautiful, intricate walls of soft guitar feedback and cello sounds on the first side, haunting, delicate and somewhat apocalyptic lo-fi ambience on the other. Spooky but relaxing. I love it!
Favorite track: Lucid Dream.
Stereocilia is the project of Bristol based guitarist and composer, John Scott. John uses guitar, analog synths and live looping techniques to create dense, rich layers of sound.
Over the past ten years John has performed all over the UK and Europe, presented work for live radio broadcasts and regularly composes for short films. He has also performed in three of Rhys Chatham’s 100-piece guitar orchestras. In 2012 at the Biennial Festival in Liverpool Cathedral performing A Crimson Grail and in San Francisco (2013) & Birmingham (2014) playing A Secret Rose.
Stereocilia's first release for Low Point, A Late Spring Never Lies, sees the continuing refinement of Scott's unique take on experimental guitar. Consisting of four beautifully textured tracks that float and slide into every corner of the room, these pieces undulate and develop gracefully, the odd splash of harshness offering contrast before slowly dissolving back into the whole.
