'Opening' is a visual album created by Christopher Willits. It is a 45 min film, an album released on Ghostly International, a series of photo prints, and live performances.

'Opening' is best described as an experience, designed to inspire a space of peace and expansion. Willits’ music and photographic filmmaking overlap into a kind of abstract narrative speaking to personal transformation and connection to the earth. He will be performing the sounds and images of ‘Opening’ live in the US and Europe this fall while on tour with Tycho.

This is the full film in hd quality.

Christopher Willits’ new album ‘Opening’ has indeed opened my mind to soundscapes again, and so I stumbled upon this excellent work of dark ambient and electronica. A very complex work of intense soundart and fragmented beats. Highly recommended.

Stunning and beautiful remix of Brambles’ ‘Pink And Golden Billows’ from the album ‘Charcoal’.

Remember that Serein will be releasing a '2014 Special Edition' of this groundbreaking work on vinyl in October. You can already download the digital version including eight tracks of the original release, plus the complete album the moment it’s released, and a new remix by Nest.

Brambles is the solo project of Mark Dawson, born in Britain, permanent resident of Australia and currently living who-knows-where as he travels Europe and beyond.

September 2nd marks the release of ambient music veteran’s Christopher Willits’ new release 'Opening', a new immersive audio-visual project. Across seven tracks of widescreen ambient music, 45 minutes of visuals shot over four years in multiple countries, seven photographs, and a multi-sensory, multiple channel live performance, Willits has created something which might better be thought of as an experience than a simple album.

'Opening' is unlike anything the artist has accomplished before, perhaps because the audio-visual project is about expanding one’s mind to invite something new. Or, as Willits puts it, "For me, ‘Opening’ is about transformation, the experience of changing oneself to be more of who you know you can be, and, ultimately, the joy that comes with that change."

You will be able to stream the ‘Opening’ film from September 2nd via Christopher Willits’ official Vimeo channel.

The Parlour Trick’s first full-length release, ‘A Blessed Unrest’, is named after a well-loved quote by Martha Graham. Creatively and thematically, this album is very much a ‘Madwoman in the Attic’ affair. Some of the compositions are dense and meticulously arranged. Others are more sparse, ambient soundscapes.

Majestics soundsapes by electronic music maestro Rafael Anton Irisarri. All sound sources are field recordings captured during July and August in Seattle, Moscow, and Białystok.

Rafael Anton Irisarri is an American composer, multi-instrumentalist, electronic music producer, interdisciplinary artist and curator. Predominantly associated with ambient, drone, post-minimalist, and modern classical music, Irisarri’s recorded output captures an essential vision of floating tones, deep pulsing bass and textural electronics. His use of ostinato phrases taps into minimalist ideals while atmospheric layers of effects suggests a more cinematic quality in his productions.

In all, Irisarri’s compositions are deeply emotive and epic to the point of being symphonic.

Very promising preview to Vladislav Delay’s upcoming new album. ‘Visa’ will be out in November on Delay’s very own Ripatti label.

If you want to dive deeper into the Finn’s catalogue of experimental electronica, remember to visit his Bandcamp.

Beautiful ambient guitar soundscapes by Croatian artist Iohannes celebrating the warmth of summer. You will find more of his work on his Bandcamp page.

We’ve come to expect Ghostly International to push boundaries. The independent label excels in everything from product design to lo-fi house records, and their roster of artists is deft in crossing creative lines.
San Francisco-based multimedia artist Christopher Willits is a shining personification of the curatorial house’s DNA. Willits—known for his innovative blend of acoustic and electric methods—created a cohesive seven-piece narrative of visual and sonic art called ‘Opening’, in which the listener and viewer is given a sort of meditative landscape to get lost in and experience anew with each visit.
