about

Aside from curating the Spectrum Spools imprint and taking part in the bands Emeralds, Organic Dial and Outer Space, American producer John Elliott has put out absorbing solo works over the last decade. His creations as Imaginary Softwoods fit in the tradition of kosmische greats without ever delving into pastiche.

This third album from Elliott, previously released as a cassette-only album back in 2016, features a collection of short loops, recorded live to two-track digital using analog synthesizers, Mellotron M400 and multiple arrays of configured FX processes.

The nine tracks are widescreen meditations on pastoral ambience. Gently rising and falling chords, mellifluous pads that slow fall from the sky and ever evolving patterns of melodic beauty range from innocent and youthful to more sombre and reflective. An absorbing listen that is perfect audio therapy for the mind.
