The second release by Chicago-via-Denver weirdo HANGING LICHEN. Presented here are two tracks exploring themes of ecological degradation and the interconnection between people and environments through collaged and manipulated field recordings, processed into HEAVY drone, punctuated by suggested rhythms and micromelodies. A heady, deep dive into noisy soundscapes, before emerging into a strange, off-kilter groove via spontaneous, site specific sound looping. Dig in.
Recorded in Capitol Hill, Denver, CO and Rogers Park, Chicago.
Presented as a bonus track is a snippet of a live recording from the summer of 2016, performing an ecological installation at venerable Denver DIY institution Rhinoceropolis.
