Ambimusica / Crucubulum Media Notes on The Future of Music and the Art of Sound

Black Mountain School

Black Mountain School is a duo that has been quietly releasing unobtrusive music for the past decade.

These compositions are contemporary tone poems and long-form ambient atmospheres. You will notice these recordings are peculiarly quiet. They have been mastered to optimal ambient levels for volume to be adjusted according to listeners' settings and tastes, whether in enclosed, intimate spaces or open, outdoor venues.

Mythology and folklore speak of music as a magical force.

Sounds associated with enchantment and sorcery are at a far distance from contemporary understanding, being associated with narratives of extraordinary events.

But there is more.

When music is central to tales of the strange and paranormal, attempts to evoke its nature falter. It is invariably described as ethereal, beautiful, mystical... and altogether unlike anything that would fit a modern definition of "music". It defies remembering, and thus cannot be replicated, leaving only a deep, lasting impression of high strangeness.

Recognizing this distinction, Black Mountain School strives to create sonic atmospheres that evoke the uncanny and otherworldly perspectives of art and imagination.
