Release Date:08/05/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing including CD edition. 2016 release, the second album by prodigiously talented multi-instrumentalist and composer Jherek Bischoff. Gloriously cinematic, these modern orchestral recordings pull at the heartstrings. It comes hot on the heels of Strung Out In Heaven, a moving string quartet tribute to David Bowie, conceived with Amanda Palmer and featuring the significant talents of Anna Calvi, John Cameron Mitchell and Neil Gaiman. A prolific and divergent collaborator, working with the likes of David Byrne, The Kronos Quartet, Caetano Veloso, Xiu Xiu and Australian star Missy Higgins, the real Bischoff can be difficult to pin down, but Cistern is an intensely personal work. It is intrinsically linked to the space in which it was conceived, born from time spent improvising in an empty, two-million-gallon underground water tank. The environs forced Bischoff to slow down, to reflect, to draw on his childhood growing up on a sailing boat-an unexpected journey of rediscovery, from the city back to the Pacific Ocean via the cistern. Bischoff first discovered the cistern while mixing his previous album, Composed, at Fort Worden, an old army base in Washington state. Intrigued by rumors of a 45-second reverb and Pauline Oliveros's 1989 Deep Listening album (which was recorded in the same space), his adventurous spirit drew him to this subterranean world to explore the acoustic possibilities. Hooking his computer and bass amp up to his car battery, armed with an arsenal of instruments, he descended into the darkness.;Track List:1. Automatism;2. Closer to Closure;3. Cas(S)Iopeia;4.
