William Tyler is a composer and sound artist based in Los Angeles via the American South. He believes in chasing melodies and memories and feels that deep listening is the only kind of listening.

Artist notes:

This piece evokes the feeling of being in a bomb shelter during the end of the world and somehow the music on some radio station that has survived the initial blast keeps playing—eerie and comforting. Ghostly music for a ghostly landscape. I was trying to distill some of the isolation of the last two years and some of the beauty that pokes through the loneliness even if it sounds far away, buried, or not even totally present.

It’s all recordings of AM radio heavily processed through tape saturation and specifically this pedal made in Knoxville TN called the Microcosm.
