about

DS016

Large glacial towers of guitar float across an expansive horizon, leading to warm moments of true self-reflection…

Decaying Spheres offers an engrossing journey, with a release that taps into the sublime might of nature to posit emotive expressions of identity in an inordinate world.

In just four tracks, Canadian musician Logan Scott – under the moniker Pulvil – presents swathes of sonic landscape while weaving a moving narrative through it. From Creation, with its gritty noise like sheet rain partially smearing the dreamy vista. Its prolonged melodic guitar notes, swirling like an unfathomably large and blurred entity at the zenith of the listener’s viewpoint. Its cold but mystic tone sounding like a religious spectacle in a torrential downpour. To the conclusive track, Palinopsia, providing an altogether more warm and internal sound. Asura’s once sharp tones cooed into a soothing and untroubling form, emotive pads free to blossom in calm, gratifying air. In this way, Pulvil navigates, over the course of the release’s runtime, from the overwhelming corporeal noise of the external and observed down into the more dulcet and elegantly emotional currents of the observer.

Organic sounds play a large role. In the aptly-named Heavy Air, for instance, the pressuring weight of the atmosphere is communicated through the unquenchable drone-roar of amplified strings. One can still hear the recognisable steel cadence in the more graceful and animated movements, beyond the saturated air in the middle distance, illustrating an ability to effectively layer aspects to create perspective.

Asura is a striking coalescence of spirit and surroundings. Vulnerability shown in deeply personal movements is, at first, battered by harsh sonic elements that appear unknowable, before the two aspects embrace in a spiritual catharsis, allowing pure emotion to bloom and swirl unhindered.

With Asura, Decaying Spheres welcome a distinctive artist and a notable release. Salient in its explorations of emotional vulnerability in harsh and ultimately impenetrable elements.
