Celebrating 20 years of “slow-moving music.”
Described by Ghostly as “calm, slow-moving music that straddles the synthetic/organic divide in surprising ways”, the label has used the acronym SMM to describe the more ambient and experimental acts on their roster.
Its 10-tracks span from modular synth practitioner Emily A. Sprague’s melancholic ‘Mesa’ to Orca’s soft vocals on ‘Rills’ and ends with bird and forest sounds in Japanese producer and field recorder Yosi Horikawa’s ‘Thalfang’.
The compilation is the third collection released by Ghostly to flesh out the SMM concept, following 2011’s SMM: Context and 2013’s SMM: Opiate.
