about

info from the facture bandcamp page:

"aSpiritual, from offthesky (Jason Corder) and Rin Howell (Psychic Secretary, Luxury Hearse), is comprised of four meditations, which are described as ‘reflections on spirituality, energy, and change’. Singer and oboist Howell and experimental sound artist offthesky both call Denver, Colorado, home. But their real home is located in an entirely different dimension, invisible to the eyes but still having the power of ultimate expression, and undeniably existing in our shared physical reality, and that home lies within their music. What one finds in aSpiritual is mystical music, introspective notes rising up like smoke, able to bewitch listeners with its casting of seductive spells, some kind of magic existing and exiting through the music.

The voice is the medium through which all other sounds pass; it’s the primary sound, and without it, the music would feel faint and unable to reach its true potential. Lyrical interpretations are left up to the listener, with an open-ended nature inclining towards the infinite in its possibilities, and making the music feel entirely subjective.

Recording began way back in 2018, but it’s only now, in 2021, that its fruit has ripened. In the intervening years, it gestated, growing in the womb, lying in a cocoon of darkness, waiting for the right time to emerge. Completed in 2020, the cycle is now complete. These incantations are spiritual in nature, evoking something ancient and yet something eternal, without the expiration date of age. aSpiritual fulfils all that it was made for, deepening the age-old connection between music and spirituality.
