Eluvium - Static Nocturne (2010)

Can't remember how, when or where I stumbled across Eluvium but he has developed a sound all his own ranging from slow moving, beautiful piano pieces to dissecting what is often considered "noise" to bring out the beauty found therein.

The first time I ever heard "Zerthis Was A Shivering Human Image" I sat mesmerized for 15 minutes of distorted guitar washing back and forth over me and I achieved a level of peace I could not explain.

This was a limited release from Eluvium (currently going for stupid money on discogs) that tapped into this sound.  For 50 minutes, prepare to be immersed in what he called "an homage to static/white noise."
