A soft track filled with patient unfolding melodies that twist into spontaneous and beautiful shapes, “Yellowstone” from Ishmael Cormack has an immediate slowing of the blood. Backwards flowing melodies float atop some truly full and rich ambient pads while found sounds are processed into new lives.

As Cormack puts it, “This work continues my obsessions with gathering found sounds into the studio. Capturing sounds that are connected to places and framing them as music. Using tape to create age and a sense of nostalgia. Using software to create serendipity, this reflects how I see nature, both chaotic and orderly. Treating everyday objects and sounds with reverence. In this sense my music is an offering to what already is.”
