Gunnison6610 This album is amazing for the piano aspect of it, it's like searching through a person's distorted memories of the past. Great example of dark ambient. Favorite track: When the dog days were drawing to an end.

Dylan Zayas To me, this is the most dreary and desolate sounding Caretaker record.
In "Patience (After Sebald)", the mechanical noise that is synonymous with "Haunted Ballroom" recordings has been dialed up to a point where it becomes almost grading at times.
Yet still, this album manages to be one of Leyland Kirby's most immersive projects. Favorite track: Everything is on the point of decline.

about

The Caretaker returns with a long-in-the-making soundtrack to acclaimed filmmaker Grant Gee's documentary about German writer WG Sebald. 'Patience (After Sebald)' is a multi-layered film essay on landscape, art, history, life and loss - an exploration of the work and influence of German writer WG Sebald (1944-2001), told via a long walk through coastal East Anglia tracking his most famous book 'The Rings Of Saturn'. The source material for 'Patience' was sourced from Franz Schubert's 1827 piece 'Winterreise' and subjected to his perplexing processes, smudging and rubbing isolated fragments into a dust-caked haze of plangent keys, strangely resolved loops and de-pitched vocals which recede from view as eerily as they appear.
