Jherek Bischoff - Cistern album review

Album Review

Los Angeles-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Jherek Bischoff plumbs Eno-like depths

Cistern was inspired by Bischoff improvising in an empty two million gallon underground water tank. That may seem a particularly eccentric idea, but he was interested in exploiting its natural reverb and these nine compositions carry a feeling of wave interference and slow moving forms. For Bischoff this exercise also brought to mind the watery oscillations and tidal ebb and flow of his childhood spent growing up on a boat.
