Visible Cloaks

Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlile’s project Visible Cloaks filter an 80s Japanese take on ambient music (among other worldly inspirations) through a contemporary lens. Using an international array of virtual instruments to advance the idea of pan-globalism through digital simulation, the crystalline sounds of this year’s album “Reassemblage” constitute a new and wonderful musical language. While retaining a gently stripped-down character, Visible Cloaks manage to create music that is lush and very vivid, creating an immersive and psychedelic experience both via their recordings and live.
