Ghost Notes LP
Low Point 58 / UK / 2014
Ghost Notes is the third album from Nottingham-based musician Dan Layton, aka Apalusa. Recorded in Nottingham during the summer of 2013, Ghost Notes saw Layton employing a ‘composition by subtraction’ approach. Starting with layers of guitar drone, granular synthesis, field recordings and manipulated vocals, Layton then stripped back all extraneous material before painstakingly assembling what remained to create this tightly focussed and microscopically detailed record. Every click, hiss and rumble is meticulously placed to provide a backdrop to an album making Ghost Notes the most accomplished record of Layton's career to date.
