The Caretaker - Everywhere, An Empty Bliss mp3 album
An Empty Bliss Beyond This World is a studio album of The Caretaker, an ambient music project of English musician James Kirby. The LP uses samples of pre-World War II vinyl ballroom jazz records Kirby bought very cheaply at a Brooklyn store in December 2010
And Bliss Everywhere Bliss. Companies, etc. Mastered At – Studio Schwebung. Artwork, Cover – Ivan Seal. Compiled By – Leyland Kirby. Mastered By – Stephan Mathieu. This item is a book of Ivan Seals art and a CD of Everywhere An Empty Bliss REMIXED. It cost me from Boomkat £4. 9 (£32. Both Boomkat and James Kirby claim. this is not a rip off. I will let you decide on that.
This album has made a thought provoking question of loss in life and how it can or cannot be dealt with and struggles that follow along within it and surround it with scratches (from a vinyl) though out the album that distort the memories that one embarks and makes them one sided with it playing through one perspective (ear) at times. provides listeners with a window into an decadent past, tinted with the subjectivity of memory and the faint notion that perhaps it was all imagined. The record crackles with the sound of old vinyl. Sections of ballroom music repeat and restart at disorienting.
Things have been rearranged in places and other things brought in and out of focus. Surface noise"- which is abundant- "is from the original vinyls. Kirby is an artist whose concepts are sometimes more fun to engage with than his music.
The Caretaker project began in 1999 with Selected Memories From The Haunted Ballroom, which took Jack Nicholson’s character from The Shining as a metaphor for mental health and the loss of memory. Each stage of Everywhere At The End Of Time, which began in 2016, was designed as an artistic reflection of dementia and the debilitating symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease. The project’s conclusion is accompanied with an additional surprise album, Everywhere, An Empty Bliss, which Kirby calls one last chance to raise a charged glass for those we lost along the way, for all the works, for those ghosts from our past, for our uncertain future and for The Caretaker.
