What the press says
Wintry melodies, prepared piano and subtle electronics are at the heart of Corley’s sound.
Beautifully compelling debut release by a real find…It treads a very fine line between neo-classical (de)composition and
metaphysical field recordings that so many have tried yet failed to capture so delicately as this.
Glitchy electronics revolve around heavily processed guitar figures; deft piano chords underpin spacious landscapes of found sounds to conjure images of a haunted, vacant world.
Corley shows himself to be a masterful sculptor of sound, someone capable of shaping myriad fragments into meaningful wholes of dramatic import…nothing short of remarkable.
Eerily sumptuous, Disquiet is a very strong and listenable debut containing both obvious surface musicality and a wealth of microcosmic activity lurking in the periphery.
The attention to detail and the rich, atmospheric textures help to smoothen out the contrasting squeaks and shivers, until the music enjoys a near-perfect state of equilibrium that is very difficult to conjure.
“...a masterpiece, sparse and unadorned without ever being austere, a chillingly-beautiful set of instrumental meditations.”
