2011 release by this experimental side project from Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree). Described by Wilson as a sequel to Ghosts on Magnetic Tape, Cenotaph is, in fact, far more than that. Just like it's renowned predecessor, still regarded by Wilson as an all-time favorite in his oeuvre, this album turns spatial relations upside down. Carving out vast aural sculptures - cenotaphs of sound - from them, the album is made up of four massive compositions each around the 20 minute mark. As Steven puts it himself: "It's a very dark and spectral album, four 20 minute clouds of brooding drones, perhaps closest in style to previous albums such as Ghosts on Magnetic Tape and Loss, but looser in a way.
