Altus - Winter Embrace (15th Anniversary Edition)
« on: November 05, 2017, 06:54:30 AM »


Introducing the definitive version of Winter Embrace by Altus (Mike Carss), a Canadian musician with 40+ releases over the course of his career. For the first time, Altus is available on pressed CD. The album was originally released in 2002, and then rebuilt from the ground up in 2017. This is a long-play album that begins in a slow-motion neoclassical minimalist structure, transforming into an ambient bed of sound over the course of 62 minutes. The music was created to accompany the sights and sounds of the first snowfall of the winter season.

A great album made even better. I was happy to buy the CD. Congrats on the release, Mike.
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.
