Stunning noise with vocals and tape loops
Ian William Craig is a classically schooled, Canadian composer/singer who creates the most stunning, gently crackling music with his voice and tape loops. After a silence of almost 18 months, on November 2 the man will be releasing a new album, Thresholder (on 130701, sublabel of FatCat). In the making of it, he was inspired by quantum mechanics, black holes and outer space.
For fans of William Basinski, Anohni, Sarah Davachi, Fennesz

‘The result is fittingly breathtaking, a singer destroying his own work, yet creating something more elegiac and profound in the process.’ 100/100, Mojo
