Subtitled "Sonic-Carousels, Tonesheets, Loopstrata, And Slo-Wave Microsymphonies 1993-2000"

Edition of 500

“Their textured sound forms, are portable pieces of sonic art...dappled light harmonics, stormy movements, looped and wrapped in narcotic melodies” – j. olariu / e|i magazine Thermals debuted in the Spring of 2001 to a lucky lot of 100 people. Hand-stamped CD-R’s, homemade artwork housed an incredible set of micro-symphonic musics. Over the course of 7 years of collecting odd loopstrata rescued from quarter-inch tape obscurity, the three meticulous members of Kiln went about the daunting task of re-compiling, remastering and renovating what is now the 2005 Infraction Records edition of Thermals in it’s full-pressed glorious beauty. Elemental and immersive environments of Gaussian tone and color. There are rewards for the deep listener – each of these sonic carousels expanding slowly becoming 'space-tuning' tonics whose lilting beauty is sensed rather than heard. Chances are anyone who has a few titles of the kranky catalog on their shelves or has perused the works of Labradford and/or Stars of the Lid (or Pan America or Eno or Loscil or, or, or…) has heard Kiln in one form or another. Other guises have been called Fibreforms, Waterwheel and then finally Kiln with releases on Ghostly International, Room Tone and Thalassa. Infraction Records is very thrilled to release this disc from Kiln. One staffer remarked “It’s like having 23 different takes on the emotive quality that Eno’s “an ending (descent)” (from Apollo : Atmospheres) provided. The 4 minute mini-film soundtrack that actually lives up to that description.”
