The Duality of Man is a grueling slab of Noire - a Bernard Herrmann score fighting to be heard beneath the murk, and failing. A soundtrack smothered in warm drones - drowning in a bubbling moonshine bathtub whilst having your feet rubbed.
Rocking yourself to sleep on humid Boot Camp nights never felt so good.

From the artist:

Pogue Colonel: Marine, what is that button on your body armor?
Private Joker: A peace symbol, sir.
Pogue Colonel: Where'd you get it?
Private Joker: I don't remember, sir.
Pogue Colonel: What is that you've got written on your helmet?
Private Joker: "Born to Kill", sir.
Pogue Colonel: You write "Born to Kill" on your helmet and you wear a peace button. What's that supposed to be, some kind of sick joke?
Private Joker: No, sir.
Pogue Colonel: You'd better get your head and your ass wired together, or I will take a giant shit on you.
Private Joker: Yes, sir.
Pogue Colonel: Now answer my question or you'll be standing tall before the man.
Private Joker: I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man, sir.
Pogue Colonel: The what?
Private Joker: The duality of man. The Jungian thing, sir.

If Kepier Woods, County Durham is a key to the origin of Joseph Curwen, then Kepier Widow is that same musical psyche transposed to the concrete metropolis of Greater Manchester. Analogue and digital synth explorations after discovering the paths of Raspberry Pi MIDI patterns, BELA digital effects, and the warmth of a good 90s mixer (thanks Black Mountain Transmitter). For fans of Ken Hale and Abigail Mead.

Kepler Widow. World weary electronic ambiance from North Manchester.
