John Foxx describes "Cathedral Oceans" as being "Music for a vast, half-submerged, ruined cathedral." Others might describe it as the ultimate in chill out music. Its shifting, shimmering voices and echoes place it between New Age soundscapes and the likes of Brian Eno’s "Music For Airports", and also invoke comparisons with Gregorian chant, seventies Tangerine Dream, and modern classical composer Ligeti (as featured in "2001: A Space Odyssey").
This mid-price 2 CD set is beautifully packaged in a digipak, with imagery designed by John Foxx himself, taken from his recent multimedia exhibition.
Recording originally began in 1983, and whilst Volume I was previously available as a limited edition, Volume II is previously unreleased in any form. Edsel Records is proud to issue this unique set.
To the delight of his substantial fanbase, John Foxx continues to make concert appearances throughout Europe.
