Monolake on how we cope with death: mythologies, rituals, drugs and Ghosts – FACT magazine: music and art | Hauntology |
The eighth Monolake full-length to date, and the first since 2009′s pensive Silence, Ghosts is a shattering piece of work. The title of the album was the first thing to come to Henke; the word ‘Ghosts’ appealed not because of any one meaning, but because of its manifold associations and connotations. He began to think of the sounds he was creating in the studio as ”whimsical little creatures, potentially mean or helpful spirits”, phenomena operating at the edge of human perception.
