Aural Histories Of The Jovian Survey - Book II

by The Elderbranch Campaign



Aural Histories Of The Jovian Survey - Book II, the 5th full-length release by The Elderbranch Campaign, is the second in a continuing set of interpretive soundscapes chronicling a future mission to search for life on Europa, and explore Jupiter's other moons. It takes up where Book I left off, and covers the discovery of a long extinct advanced species that once thrived on Europa, and evidence that they encoded the microbial life found in the seas under the ice sheets with building blocks they hoped would force them to evolve on a path that would one day resurrect their species. Stylistically and musically it follows in the footsteps of Book I, 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.

If you like the album please show your support and purchase it! Show the world that good music is not a disposable commodity, and that inspired artists do not have to sell their souls to corporate labels in order to matter.
