john foxx

perhaps his most accomplished work to date, John Foxx’s ‘cathedral oceans’ trilogy is an intensely moving ambient symphony, in many respects it is meant to viewed as an audio artitectural space meant specifically for people to enter, walk through, explore and if they so wish, lose themselves in, at once ethereal and elegiac, the aim to create a space to contemplate, a life work in its creation, utilising chorals, Gregorian chants and swathes of heavenly oceanic ambience, its origins stem back to recapture the vast cavernous magisterial rejoices of Foxx’s choir boy days as a child, whilst musicakly its roots first flowered on elements of ‘the garden’ in the earely 80’s.

due to be released September end through Edsel, the trilogy gets a lavish gathering by way of a strictly limited 750 only hand numbered 5 x vinyl album presentation replete with a 12 x 12 inch art print and a book containing images and passages from his ‘Quiet Man’ accounts all housed in a hardbook book set.
