Aural Histories Of The Jovian Survey - Book V, the 8th full-length release by The Elderbranch Campaign, is the fifth in a continuing series of interpretive soundscapes chronicling a future mission to search for life on Europa, and explore Jupiter's other moons. It takes up where Book IV left off, and covers the team's studies on Callisto, as they delve deeper into the history of the Denisovan branch of Homo sapiens. As the mystery of their existence in the Jovian system deepens, they are left with an overwhelming reverence for the tenacity and persistence of life itself...
Stylistically and musically the album follows in the footsteps of Books I - IV, with synths, found objects and highly processed field recordings creating complex and vivid audio sculptures that act as soundtracks for the mind. ABSOLUTELY BEST EXPERIENCED OVER HEADPHONES.
