Black Sky Chants’ awesomely titled ‘I’ll sleep until I see the moon’ cassette is a mass celestial download of messages from civilisations that are, in some cases, beyond dust, and in others, after resurrection.
You can read in its tracks what you will, aesthetic eruptions in Solaris’ id, or messages from our alien fifth column’s dearest ones, encoded by a non-decimal numbers station somewhere in Luna’s dark side.
We find a melancholy epic encoded in Strobe Glide, like the mysterious melody that lured Warlord Shingen to his death in Kagemusha, but playing across the colossal battlefields of a stellar siege worthy of Iain M. Banks’ ‘The Use of Weapons’. A melody knowingly converged upon by its victim, for, as we now realise, life isn’t all that rare in this vast universe of ours. Beauty, ah, beauty, that’s a different affair.
