Just in time for Guy Fawkes Night, Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present "Fawkes Mask", the newest, and perhaps most mysterious missive from The Glove Of Bones. Continuing with the process of auditory alchemy displayed on the previous albums "Heretical Alchemy" and "9", "Fawkes Mask" is an expansion of sources and themes, appropriate for both the day and the times we live in. Elements of industrial, electronica, dub and ambient can be found herein, along with the intrigue one encounters when multiple musical genres are fused together in this manner.
The origins of this project can be traced back to May of this year, when The Glove Of Bones received an anonymized email from "Fawkes Mask". Included was a link to four core pieces: "Fol'eah Dispersion (Ante & Post), Chephaecarro, and Dora JS. These tracks, in addition to original production, were also aided by the Generlter by Thomas Park and additional samples by State Azure (all Creative Commons Attribution licensed). These tracks were then further altered and extended by The Glove Of Bones, and three additional tracks were created to serve as intro, respite, and outro, further building on the already established project themes. Primavera (For E.V.) is noted as being a rework of a track made in the spring of 2020, with the Anxiety Machine and other 'real instruments'.
For the keen eared among us, there are several repeating loops and themes throughout the album, which may help navigate the provenance of the individual parts and sections. It is also important to emphasize that the individual known as "Fawkes Mask" is NOT Thomas Park, State Azure, The Glove Of Bones, or John Lithium.
Finally, additional credit also to Hainbach for the Noises "Creative Texture Instrument" (www.audiothing.net/instruments/noises/
) which gets a huge work out within and very much color the whole work.
Remember, remember, the fifth of November.
