Ian William Craig
Meaning Turns To Whispers

Norman fave Ian William Craig is back again with a reissue of his earliest, piano-based album: not in a straightforward way though. While the improvised melodies he plays have that pristine neo-classical Frahm-esque beauty to them, Craig has tweaked, looped and manipulated the source piano via t...view item »


Ian William Craig
Thresholder

Ian William Craig is always very welcome round these parts, and Thresholder, the man’s first album in eighteen months, demonstrates why. Those tape machines of his are put to work in the construction of an eleven-track, forty-minute sound environment. Deep and gorgeous smeared ambience, on FatCat sub-label 130701....view item »


Ian William Craig
A Turn of Breath - Extended

Q:What do you get if you cross an opera singer with a bedroom recording artist? A:Ian William Craig. A Turn Of Breath was the Canadian artist’s debut album and was noted for smashing two ostensibly wildly disparate genres together, opera and tape experiments. Craig’s voice adds both beautiful and mour...view item »

Durbē

Ian William Craig is a long-time favourite of ours at Norman Records: who could resist his magical combination of gorgeous voice with sweetly-tweaked tape loops and drones? Durbe is a document of a live performa...view item »

Ian William Craig
Slow Vessels

Ian William Craig somewhat returns to his tremendously loved 2016 album Centres with an EP that relocates some of those pieces onto voice, piano and acoustic guitar, with just a few licks of subtle tape manipulation lapping at the edges. Slow Vessels proves that Craig’s songwriting is jus...view item »

Centres

Ever-prolific tape chemist Ian William Craig is readying yet another record of gorgeous crackle pop. Having broken our hearts with the fragmented opera loops of A Turn of Breath in 2014, he's since released the understated but equally beautiful Cradle For The Wanting ...view item »


Ian William Craig
Zugzwang for Fostex

Does Ian William Craig ever stop? Hot on the heels of the last release (and not long before that gig of his we’re putting on in Bradford in August, nudge nudge), Craig sneaks out Zugzwang for Fostex. Voice, piano and the sounds of a dying circuit-bent cassette recorder, all looped and assembled in...view item »

Ian William Craig
Cradle for the Wanting

Ian William Craig's previous release 'A Turn of Breath' was not only a favourite with us but with the New York Times. So there. The Wire have also featured this Canadian sound collagist of late so there is high anticipation of this new record. This time round Craig has recorded very quickly (months rather than years) and has used only his voice ...view item »

Ian William Craig
A Turn Of Breath

Ian William Craig makes choral drone music on this stunning ambient record with the most fitting title of the year: 'A Turn Of Breath'. Craig performs warm vocal harmonies and stretches them to their breaking point, backing them with crackling drones that feel both part of nature and decidedly bedroom pop. 'A Turn Of Breath' is the perfect ...view item »
