Polypores – Sky Man (Castles in Space) 

From Flora album. 

Polypores (aka Stephen James Buckley) makes cosmic sleep music, sci-fi soundtracks and immersive drones with synthesizers.

Towering flowers and fungus. Both frightening and overwhelmingly beautiful. Then, emerging at the end through the canopy of trees into bright daylight. The last track, Sky Man, represents this I think. Like I say, it’s a very loose narrative. I don’t even feel like I wrote it myself – more that I channeled it from that strange ether out of which music comes.”
