The Precession of Simulacra by Heavy Cloud
The Precession of Simulacra is out today – a journey through reflections, refractions and the hyperreal, echoing a society where imagination precedes reality.
Available as a download with PDF zine (currently free/pay what you can) and as a limited edition cassette that comes with a 32-page pamphlet of fiction, essays and collages, plus art cards and stickers.
Please help yourself to a Bandcamp code to check it out:
“Part One begins with aquatic percussive clutter and swirling sonic debris, before moving into text-generated (the author's own as well as some literary heavyweights) synth tones as a sci-fi melancholy floats up from the ocean floor and spreads across lonesome streets.
“Part Two shares a dialogue with what came before, but follows its own simulated network and engagement with the subconscious. Gurgling, watery synths blend with blasts of cut-up samples, polyphonic tones and VHS alien chatter. Melodic waves and lofi loops provide a weathered neon calm.” – Without Origin or Reality (2021)
