You like library music & lush, orchestral funk? With some pastoral radiophonics on the side? A dash of late 70s jazz fusion & early 80s electronica? Tribal percussion, easy / sleazy vibes with plenty of twang, slap bass & a dollop of sauce? And you recognise most, if not all, of these names?

Being a child in the 70s and early 80s had a certain spookiness to it. Spirits seemed more readily available. I recall a homesickness which would haunt me even then, as if I were from another place entirely. Life's a mystery which childhood makes even worse, so let us revisit it in all its haunting creepiness.
Who are the "pocket pavilions"? I can find nothing more other than this one song, and it's a very good tune I really enjoy. Apocalypse Devotee
REALLY wish I'd subscribed sooner to be able to enjoy this on vinyl! Curious the artist cited 12 Monkeys and not La Jetee as one of the key inspirations. For me, this has a more somber, introspective and timeless feel more akin to La Jetee than 12 Monkeys (though I also am a big fan of Terry Gilliam). Gorgeous music and you get the bonus of a list of excellent movies to enjoy (another note to the artist: Time Crimes is also a good film to watch). Now to somehow procure a vinyl copy...

Fascinating chat with Mr. Concretism. Great to hear about his synths and software and the track by track analysis of The Concretism Archive vol.1 adds to the listening experience - more of that sort of thing please! Infinite Tapes
