Worrytrain - Fog dance, my moth kingdom

Album: Fog dance, my moth kingdom
Year: 2007
Genre:Post Rock,Neo-classical,Ambient

Worrytrain (Joshua Neil Geissler) is this kind of solo artist who plays a lot of different instruments, sending them through many effects and mixing it together into a mind-boggling ensemble. Fog Dance, My Moth Kingdom is Worrytrain’s fourth album, and it tickles the brain with fifteen miniatures that owe as much to experimental classical music as to movie soundtracks, which is why it shouldn’t surprise that Mr Geissler is also active in cinematography composition.
This album attempts to balance modern classical composition with harsh electro noise, two fields that he feels can reach the same level of intensity and emotional dialect for those willing to try it and one that he plans to explore more in the future
Main instruments are the piano and the cello, although you get to hear also string sections and probably some further unlisted gear. The use of effects and the very special production put this release into the territory of electro-acoustic music. Most tracks have no apparent rhythm, and if you allow yourself to close your eyes, you will see how Worrytrain’s music is paining pictures inside your closed eyelids!!
