Lyrics: This is the last time I saw you.
Zann's Rest 03:48


An experimental soundtrack for H. P. Lovecraft's short story "The Music of Erich Zann" (first published in the National Amateur in March, 1922). While Lovecraft's descriptions of Zann's music, as heard by the tale's protagonist through the walls, hint at chaos and pandemonium, this soundtrack instead takes a dark mathematical approach to the breakdown of the barrier between the world we know and a mysterious place beyond it. From the story: "There in the narrow hall, outside the bolted door with the covered keyhole, I often heard sounds which filled me with an indefinable dread - the dread of vague wonder and brooding mystery. It was not that the sounds were hideous, for they were not; but that they held vibrations suggesting nothing on this globe of earth, and that at certain intervals they assumed a symphonic quality which I could hardly conceive as produced by one player."


released December 21, 2018

All tracks composed and performed by James Kracht (September 2018 - November 2018).

Voice on 'Lone Curtained Window' by Mariah Bonner (themariahbonner.com).
