Moss Garden is a duo of Lee Anthony Norris (better known as Metamatics, Norken, Nacht Plank) and Dimitar Dodovski (a techno producer from Macedonia) formed in October 2012, which is a logical result of friendship over the few years, sharing mutual views on ambient music. Their name derives from the David Bowie's track produced by Brian Eno on his “Heroes” album, which is a non-vocal, gentle journey into the ambient world. Their first album “Understanding Holy Ghosts” is an ethereal album, consisting of introspective and almost tactile, moss textured tracks.

Moss Garden is a first release from kaico, a sub label of SPEKK, Tokyo organized by Tomoki Takeuchi. Metamatics やNorken、アンビエント名義のNacht Plank など、様々な名義で今は亡き伝説のCLEAR をはじめ世界中からリリースしているLEE NORRIS( リー・ノリス) 。そしてLEE が主催し、Move D、Kettel、Funckarma、Apparat など錚々たるアーティストをリリースしてきた“Neo Ouija”出身のテクノプロデューサーDimitar Dodovski( ディミター・ドドフスキー) からなるアンビエントユニット。デビューアルバムは、幽玄なアンビエンスの中からコズミックなシンセやグリッチ、ノイズが現れては消えていく、テクノ、ダブアーティストならではの唯一無二なサウンドスケープが展開される壮大かつ鋭いアンビエント!マスタリングは日本が世界に誇るドローン・アーティストChihei Hatakeyama が担当。

Recommendation notes:

"Moss Garden is deep and cinematic. It reminds me very much being in the thick, wet undergrowth of a plant world where beauty, danger and uncertainty wait around every corner." - Taylor Deupree

“I wonder if they have recorded the sounds on casettes, as these hiss sounds are providing extra beauty to the drone sounds. As if a deep sea with an outstanding view, the transparent water like block of sounds sink deeply into your soul.” - Chihei Hatakeyama
