"The audio equivalent of an Edgar Allen Poe compendium, ranging from the darkly beautiful to stark bleakness." -- Dusted Bass Communion is a project dedicated to Steven Wilson's recordings in the ambient, drone, and/or electronic veins. Most of the pieces are experiments in texture made from processing recordings of real instruments and field recordings. The atmosphere of the music tends towards the dark and melancholic, but is expressed with an almost Zen-like beauty. Recently, Wilson has started working with a guitar and laptop configuration, and the first material in this style is contained on this album. Bass Communion has released several CDs, LPs, and singles, many of them issued in handmade or limited editions (which sell out very quickly). The most recent release was the super-low end Pacific Codex, which contained just one 40-minute piece issued in a limited edition of 975 copies packaged in a deluxe box containing a CD, DVD-A, and a book.

"This will strongly appeal to anyone who likes darker electronic moods as exemplified by early Tangerine Dream or even more drone acts like Fear Falls Burning or even Sunn o))).A deep listen experience for the open minded."
Another facet of stephen wilson's talent

"So the other reviewer doesn't like ambient music and is upset he bought this. This is great ambient music but it is not Porcupine Tree or any of S. Wilson's other bands."
