City of Ashes


Altus proudly presents City of Ashes, an audio/visual project pairing the music of Mike Carss and the photography of Shawn Sintzel. A mix of ambient and orchestral works, this is by far the most cinematic music Carss has released to date, and acts as a film-like soundtrack to Sintzel's stark and austere photography.

Active listening is encouraged.

Available as 320kb MP3, and FLAC for those who rather to burn to CD.
Full-length previews also available at
last.fm
