Occasionally when we dream, we hear. These sounds can take many forms - from the familiar chimes of our everyday to more alien non representative audio apparitions - like music. It’s from this place that Sleeper calls.
In the land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa, we found C.J Parahi aka Sleeper. As the co- founder and curator of Cooper Cult records, he has been responsible a string of curious releases that burrow deep into the antipodean core of his homeland New Zealand.
As Sleeper though, C.J. opens a new window - one that stretches out from conscious horizons and continues into the uneasy realms of the subconscious.
Sleeper is a distant dream, a haze of woven fog that rolls in an undulating hypnotic loop.
His first offering, From Beyond, is a collection of pitched down and heavily processed field recordings, samples and found sounds which work to create a wide musical spectrum encompassing drone, ambient atmospheres and vague outsider pop.
