NEW MUSIC: NOUS – Blush

1560957835373

NOUS have conjured up a swirling sonic miasma of musical nerves and tension, winding martial rhythms around droning, spiralling textures that add up to quite a glorious and immersive kosmiche post-rock sound.

New York experimental music project NOUS – led by producer and composer Christopher Bono – is an experimental music project with a fluctuating group of artists exploring ritual and spontaneity within music. NOUS III (May 29th) is the third from the project’s opening trilogy of releases, culled from a five-day musical retreat & social experiment wherein 13 musicians were invited to join Christopher at the legendary converted church Dreamland Studios, with producer Kevin McMahon (Swans, Titus Andronicus) on an intensive seven-day immersion — recording for five days, with two live performances at the conclusion.

NOUS band members on this recording:

Christopher Bono (Composer, Ghost Against Ghost)
Greg Fox (Guardian Alien, Zs, Ben Frost, ex-Liturgy)
Shahzad Ismaily (Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, Bonnie Prince Billy)
Thor Harris (Swans, Angels of Light, Amanda Palmer, Shearwater)
Grey Mcmurray (itsnotyouitsme, So Percussion, Tyondai Braxton)
