To put it in a nutshell, this record proves that Mark Spybey is one of these artists who, after a long career, are still able to cleverly renew their style while remaining faithful to their roots. And for listeners who are mostly into dark and heavy music, this kind of bright interval can sometimes be a real blessing.
Solitary evenings spent among the dunes and pine forests of the Outer Lands provide the context for this release, and sonic experimentation is the method. Simply put, and to avoid wrangling over problematical categorizations, “Kiehtan” is archetypal stargazing ambient, a soundtrack for the spinning, light-flecked abyss.
Two tracks with a total playing time from over 50 minutes. Two intriguing soundscapes simply titled “How This Ends”, part one and two. Two great artists to whom this album is dedicated: David Tibet and Gordon Sharp.
