“Listening mirror is the ambient/drone project of Jeff Stonehouse. It has been in existence since October 2009, when it was formed as a duo with Kate Tustain. Kate withdrew from the project in January 2011.
Listening Mirror have released material on aReW Records, Somehow Recordings, Heat Death Records, Rural Colours, and now Entropy Records. Future releases are planned for Hibernate and Sweat Lodge Guru.
…from dreams… contains two tracks, ‘Black Spring’ and ‘Lifting the Veil of Clouds’. Both tracks are true to the Listening Mirror ethos of ‘using sound as a defence against itself’ in which sounds that would normally seem banal, discordant or unpleasant are stretched and looped, their frequencies and harmonics seperated and recombined and then treated with a variety of effects to form a thing of beauty. To this drone are added field recordings and more traditional instruments such as guitar and piano.
These six tracks were recorded during a week of seclusion in a house deep in the woods of Northern Ontario with portions recorded in a cabin in the Gatineau region of Quebec. The recordings include various sample sources including goats and birds in Switzerland, a choir featuring Kuepfer’s parents, and wolves from the Aspden Valley Wildlife Sanctuary near Rousseau, Ontario.

Hibernate Recordings kick off a new collaboration series with an ep from Isnaj Dui & Karina ESP. The goal for the series is to get two different artists on our roster to put their heads together to have some fun and do what they love best.
Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records. With a history of recording and musical study that spans back to 1995, Katie’s current sound is characterised by her use of flute, particularly the bass flute. This is generally a rarely used instrument but is used frequently throughout her work as a defining feature. Add to this a few home-made instruments and electronics and you have the very distinctive sound of Isnaj Dui, a project that has been active since 2004.
