editions vaché The most difficult thing about choosing a fave track from any offthesky CD is just that- Jason Corder is incredibly adept at creating a whole, immersive experience with each release. Corder's move to Colorado has, we'd like to believe, contributed to the expansion of his already spacious work -as a sculptor of sound you will find yourself needing more and more of his work- and his space. -ss Favorite track: scintillate inside you.

write up from hibernate records:

"Five years in the making, and well worth the wait, comes offthesky’s latest album 'the serpent phase'. offthesky will be a name familiar to many Hibernate fans as a prolific artist, having released with us ‘The Beautiful Nowhere’ in 2011 and the ‘Exit to Anywhere’ postcard in 2013, as well as numerous releases on labels such as Home Normal, Wist Rec and Dronarivm.

Initially conceived with the aim to create a series of piano sketches exploring mobile recording techniques, ‘the serpent phase’ takes in recordings made in Chicago, Switzerland, England, Canada, Colorado, and Kentucky. These initial recordings were then added to with other instrumentation including vibraphone, guitar, a synth, drum kit, vocals and textural field recordings.

Wishing to leave any deeper meaning up to the listener’s interpretation of the music, offthesky’s atmospheric collection of pieces allows us to explore the religious, spiritual and moral connotations of dark and light periods in life."
