ATRIUM CARCERI, CITIES LAST BROADCAST - Join Forces On A New Collaborative Album

  • Print

Two Swedish masters of cinematic dark ambient music, Atrium Carceri and Cities Last Broadcast, have joined forces on a new collaborative album entitled Black Corner Den. This album is the result of long winter studio sessions separated by the atlantic ocean but made possible by the internet. Lonely moments in the company of the night lamp, overlooking the messy pile of tape loops while the machines hummed and the piano played until the morning. Exploring the opium dens at the end of the 19th century, Black Corner Den, takes you deep into the soothing dreams of dead poets.
Pär Boström's (Cities Last Broadcast) dreamlike soundscapes combines with the careful melodies and elegant structures of Simon Heath (Atrium Carceri). The perfect soundtrack for decadent nights or introverted reading sessions, preferably combined.
"The streets lay silent as the floor creeks under your bare feet. The old loft lit by a wax candle, it's light dancing over your oak desk. You grab the vial of black ink and the leather bound book as you scurry out the door into the humid night. You pass trails of fire as the lamplighter tends to the myriad lanterns adorning the bridge. A left turn leads you down a set of stone stairs where the satin clad lounge welcomes you in. Sweet smoke lingers in here where gentlemen gather to dream about the black sea. Your booth at the far end stands prepared. A pipe, tinderbox and purple pillow for a tired head. You have a friend tonight and it calls itself the Black Corner Den."
Black Corner Den will be released on 5th September through Cryo Chamber and is now available for pre-orders at this location. In the player below you can give a listen to the album opening track "Laudanum". Link
