"Willamette may be an unfamiliar name but its members are no newbies; a side-project by the brothers Chong, better known to ambience chasers as Northern, whose album Drawn (Infraction - INFX 024) warmed our ears back in 2007. For Willamette the brothers are joined by Joseph Edward (Automobile, Swift), with contributions by cellist, Danny Norbury. Self-describing as 'minimal works for tape, silence, voice and various stringed instrumentation' and 'romantic music for the old and lackluster,' they operate at the interstices of space and volume, quasi-classical cadences offering a distinctly austere nostalgia. The project started several years ago and now sees an LP release in Echo Park. "your music brings various images in my mind. so calm, so sad and so beautiful. best wishes from tokyo..."
