Ian William Craig collects together eleven new compositions for his stunning new album 'Thresholder'.

Returning to the smudged ambience of his opus 'Centres', 'Thresholder' further explores the cobweb-like textures and ghost in the machine meanderings that have cloak his music much in a similar vein to the very best material of Fennesz, The Caretaker, William Basinski and Philip Jeck. Utilising Ian's classically-trained vocal as an instrument, he seemingly floats alongside an electronic set up that includes numerous customised tape decks, synths and a loop station to pull it all back inward. Thresholder offers a deeply immersive and textured listening experience that will instantly plunge you deep into a sound-world that hangs between a gaseous, ethereal shimmer, and a much harsher, visceral feeling of analogue abrasion. A truly stunning piece of work.
