Ricardo Donoso is a name that might ring familiar to regular RSTB readers, the ambient artist has hooked up with sound sculptor Luke Molodof and the two have christened themselves Perispirit. Spiritual Church Movements is the first full length vinyl release for the duo following some cassette releases for Hospital Productions and Ricardo's own Semata label. The duo digs deep into the recesses of sonic divination. Donoso harnesses the stratospheric vibrations of field recordings provided by Molodof and processes them into an amalgamation of deep space transmissions and noise juxtapositions that feel pulled from the pages of science fiction or even field studies of electromagnetic recordings of the dead. It’s easy to imagine how this fits right in with the Hospital Records aesthetic but also nice to see that Digitalis has done a wonderful job of packaging the duo's first vinyl release into a beautifully bound art object. As the months grow colder Perispirit feels like a perfect accompaniment to the isolated depths of winter to come.
