Stephan Haluska: Empty Room tape

Ambient harp music which somehow sounds darker and more mysterious than most music of that nature. You usually expect it to be all fluttering and angelic, but here’s “Empty Room” sounding sparse and isolated… and yet it’s not impenetrable avant-garde anti-music. There’s some immense beauty to this album, it just doesn’t present itself in an obvious way. The last track, “Ocean Projector”, is over 12 minutes long, and for the first half it’s barely audible, but before you know it you’re being swallowed whole.

  1. Thanks so much for introducing me to the beautiful music of Stephan Haluska. My mind was on Alice Coltrane’s Journey in Satchidananda and then I came across this. Ocean Projector literally sweeps over you….
