Label: Cold Spring
Cold Spring present That Space Somewhere, the first new album in 14 years from Lull -- the pioneering, isolationist dark ambient project of Mick Harris (Scorn, Fret, ex-Napalm Death). Lull was conceived by Mick Harris in 1990, in an attempt to create music that would stretch, if not forsake entirely, the structures of conventional music by developing and exploring sound without beats. Mick Harris on Lull: "I finally heard the way of recording, making profound sounds. Lull is purely something I can get lost in, as far as trying to create these imaginary spaces. And that's what I always tried to do -- to create. I'm a lover of sounds. I love collecting sounds. Playing with those sounds using various software until I created something new from that sound. Which for me end being what I call 'a droner' or 'a drift', I'd use those to create a piece of music, or a sound-scape. That's what I'm doing with Lull. Just trying to create soundscapes. And to this day, still, absolutely love doing that. Lull is quite natural for me. It's an extension of me. Drifting. Just going to darkness. Into a space. Lull is drifting and droning, discovering more and more what can be done with sound. These soundscapes hugely appeal to me."
"Harris pushes the notion of droning, cavernous reverb to the point of almost granular focus... It could best be described as watching a satellite, or meteorite, slowly spinning aimlessly through the dark void of space, detached, and yet somehow imbued with a serene sense of beauty... a cinematic submersive experience" (The Sleeping Shaman)
"If ever you were curious to know what 'dark ambient' is about, this (and any other record by) Lull is the most explicit definition you can get... This music has a slow cadence that is very much similar to a quiet sea... These waves roll into your living room with great ease and comfort. Sit back, close your eyes and listen... beauty unfolds" (Vital Weekly)
"As the title suggests, this is a place, a space somewhere outside of this time and space in which to lose one's self. Recommended for fans of Thomas Köner's isolationist works, Nurse With Wound's 'Soliloquy for Lilith' and the Eraserhead soundtrack" (Norman Records)
"That Space Somewhere invita a la reflexión por las hipnóticas atmósferas musicales... un álbum para en soledad, y con la mirada observando el horizonte... Un estilo dark ambient de carácter innovador donde los planos drone configuran este espacio para que el melómano lo recorra mentalmente de extremo a extremo hasta su nebuloso final... su álbum más radiante, individualista, y trascendente."
