shifting, woozy soundscapes, blurred drones, soft conjuring, and deep meditations - perfect for late night headphone trips. elsie and jack are proud to present the debut recording from aaron moore. as a founding member of the english experimental group VOLCANO THE BEAR, aaron moore has been a part of creating some of the most stimulating and diverse music of the last 10 years with releases on nurse with wound's united dairies label, and the american label, beta-lactam ring records, to name but two. 'the accidental' is moore's first solo release and is in stark contrast to his drumming and vocal work with volcano the bear. using such instrumentation as bowed and beaten vibraphone, cymbal, chord organ, thumb piano and keyboard, mainly concentrating with one instrument per track, moore has created an album of mesmerizing beauty. on 'three guineas', a keyboard is used to create a new lullaby in which we are reminded of years past. moore is continuing his work with volcano the bear and his new duo, dragon or emperor, as well as planning several collaborations in the coming months. if a follow up to 'the accidental' is to happen, then maybe it will be on purpose next time?!
