  • m sage – a singular continent – patient sounds

    out of stock

    “Something about True North has always baffled idealists. Tectonic plates established to guide the clearer top layer. Fragments of a desired truth, liberated; landscape untouched by the human condition, no need for compass. An English road pierces the jungle. An African herd grazes at the shore of the North Sea. Finding joy in the randomization of manipulation; the globe was slowly reformed from its pieces. Listen again, and I will not think the same. I changes. The compass tilts, constantly.”

    Initially composed by Matthew Sage in early 2013, the core of this recording utilizes guitars, electronics, samples & field recordings; channeling ambient, hauntological and plunderphonic curiosities. The central material was then elaborated upon, proliferated upon, populated and redefined by a group of musicians (violinist, cello, saxophone, synth, guitars, iron). A Singular Continent stands as a collection of amorphous sonic vistas & lucid environments. History laughs like a jilted map.

    The album, a 2xLP, is accompanied by four poems written by Grant Souders (one lends a line to the album’s title) & a series of collages by Nathaniel Whitcomb (one graces the album’s cover). These works strive to further realize the elusive borders of this non-place through language and imagery.

  • hakobune / m sage – split – patient sounds

    out of stock

    Two ambient producers (Hakobune / M. Sage) seperated by a myriad distance (Japan / USA), but connected by their curiousities. When melody and texture interact with emotion, or how. Pastoral waves of tone sweep across a prairie, banjo stroke, or the pine forest choir. A statue, a life crushed by centuries of listening, momentary shadows cast on plaster.

  • m sage – the receivers peaking – patient sounds

    out of stock

    Depicted here is the raised hand of an obscured preacher, hovering above rows of urban housing. A striking concept that runs deep into the fervor and punk ethos that M. Sage has been cultivating via ambient and sound collage for years. For the uninitiated, M. Sage is a man out of Fort Collins who crafts grand, aural impressions while simultaneously running his exceptional imprint Patient Sounds. His most recent work and Moon Glyph debut is “The Receivers Peaking”, a conceptual and auditory abstraction of AM radio clips, looped field recordings, processed guitar and serene, pensive composition. As a progressive and prolific worker, M. Sage deconstructs our surroundings and shows us his shimmering utopia that could have been.

  • m. sage – camouflage repertoire

    out of stock

    Recorded in March & May of 2012 at the Briar Plateaux, Camouflage Repertoire finds Sage occupying the dimly lit afternoon hours of sound. A lonely houseplant. A suburban window’s gaze.
