Gareth S. Brown

The Gallows / Royal College O' Surgeons 2xCD

A song cycle of extraordinary emotion, power and precision that's strongly influenced by the likes of Michael Nyman and Phillip Glass, Gareth S. Brown has such a distinctive way with melody that every composition is fully his own haunting string and oboe lines glide effortlessly over repetitive percussive xylophone and vibraphone. The Gallows has grown into a double album, including Royal College O' Surgeons, an album compiling tracks recorded during The Gallows and Iron Henry sessions.
 
As well as The Gallows and Royal College O' Surgeons, you will receive another CD entitled Early Mammals, an exclusive numbered and hand stamped full length bonus CD described by Brown as "based on an idea by Brian Eno [...] that doesn't sound anything like Brian Eno". Starting off as a beautiful baroque orchestral piece, it changes and mutates over the course of its 45 minutes into something much more ambient and non-linear, akin to a Morton Feldman sound experiment.
