Lullabies for Insomniacs is pleased to announce the debut release from New Jersey musician Unearth Noise titled 'Prayer and Resonance'.
The album compiles compositions recorded between 2013-2016.

As a kid Roger Berkowitz was inspired by the celestial sounds of Ravi Shankar whose album was introduced to him by his father, an engineer for RCA. In his youth he played in various punk bands and dabbled in sound experiments after being exposed to the likes of John Cage, Harry Partch, Brian Eno and Mahavishnu.

Around 25 years ago while experimenting in his basement with tapes loops, his 1/4" reel to reel and a 4-track, the name Unearth Noise was born albeit shortly lived as over the next decade his focus turned to songwriting and playing guitar and drums in various ensembles. He wrote and recorded songs that mixed rock and folk influences in an experimental manner. These were made available online under various monikers Sugar Skulls, Ancient Aliens and Shadowface.

A few years ago Roger began exploring the forms of the instrumental pieces he had archived, mixing these with eastern inspiration and rock aesthetics which had influenced and inspired so much of his sonic journey.

"I remembered my tape loops and the unearth noise episode. Recalling this, I changed my project name to Unearth Noise and set about trying to create something which I considered totally unheard in music. I delved back into the world of pure sound attempting to create a sonic experience that could challenge or subvert reality. I am a firm believer in the idea that what we take for reality on a day to day basis is a facade. Having experimented a bit with hallucinogens, I could see clearly that there is far more here than meets the eye. Listening to people like Alan Watts, it is gratifying to know that I am not alone in this belief. So, what I'm attempting to do with music, hopefully not in a forced or pretentious way, is open the mind to an alternate or deeper reality beyond this world. To this end, my compositional techniques and forms are non­traditional and often non­linear. I use instruments of my own design and construction, and blend them with source tapes, electronics, and sometimes conventional instruments”.

"Across two discs, finely presented in a suitably spun-out and ethereal way, Prayer And Resonance is a transcendental ascension through endless internal rhythm and endless drones, at times elevating and airy (like the excellent ‘Redemption for example) then taking on shades of ominous darkness and confusion before we drop right back into something unsettling yet soothing. This LP is brain exercise of the highest order, the kind of album that has therapeutic qualities… But don’t you dare file it with some sort of throwaway meditation music, this record is much more provoking and intelligent both in it’s musical tradition and in terms of it’s off-kilter experimentation through unusual harmony and rhythm. The sheer depth and intensity is pretty incredible on this one.
The clips won’t do this justice, it’s best to let this one ride and let it fully consume you. Highly recommended." - RWDFWD
