12/09/2017: Illuminating the End

 

This week we present the tenth edition in our annual “Slowly” series. This installment is inspired by NGC6565, a cloud of gas that was ejected from a dying star after stellar winds pushed its outer layers into space. It is a collage of hushed, sometimes drowsy sounds. For this reason, the duration of the show will be uninterrupted by voice. For a satisfactory listening experience we recommend finding a comfortable pair of headphones or a nice stereo, and a quiet place.
