Solar Panels on the Moon is a collection of restrained, yet poignant ambient soundscapes. Meditative field recordings permeate throughout. Whether Athenian buskers, or Polish street bazaars, ambient sounds splice with the weight of visceral, droning chords. The album is a meditation on the inevitable dissolution of earth’s resources and its singular solution, which remains shrouded in simplicity.

sir o sir is the (latest) alias of composer and sound artist Timothy Isherwood (CA/UK). An academically trained pipe-organist and pianist, Isherwood uses diverse sources, like resonators, experimental microphones, spatialized sound and synthesizers to navigate soundscapes at once summoned and subjective. Past performances include work with The National Arts Centre of Canada, Institut-Française, the Banff Centre for the Arts, and Dock11&Eden. Timothy co-founded and curates the A/V series Famous Grapes Sessions usually at ACUD Macht Neu in Berlin, and is an editor for the experimental art and music publication, 20 Seconds Magazine.
