The LP is dedicated to experimental filmmaker Paul Clipson, a close friend of both Basinski and English, who died earlier this year. Clipson’s work was closely associated with the ambient and drone scene, and during his life he collaborated with artists such as Grouper, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Sarah Davachi.
The title of the LP is taken from Dante’s Inferno, and literally translates as ‘twilight forest’. According to a press release, the title describes “the nature of losing one’s way in place and time”.
Selva Oscura will be released via Temporary Residence on 12th October, and is available to pre-order here. Check out the album artwork and tracklist below.
