Limited Edition LP Cassette // Digital
Indianapolis-based composer, Marc Ertel (PILLARS/Dawn Chorus and The Infallible Sea), made his solo debut appearance at Post. Festival 2019, where he performed alongside with other Past Inside the Present artists on the label’s showcase stage. Since that time, PITP has been anxious to share Ertel’s brilliant guitar-laden drone arrangements to the masses.
On his first proper solo release with Past Inside the Present titled, “[Overtures]”, Ertel delivers five compositions of immersive, angelic drone that embody an organic intensity suffused with opulent guitar articulations. Multiple layers of synth lines and guitar-work flawlessly converge, producing 36 minutes of vaporous soundscapes. [Overtures] is a solemn, yet equally rapturous paean to placidity. A brilliant and eloquent addition to PITP's growing catalogue of dronescapes and healing sounds.

Dawn Chorus and the Infallible Sea
Release date: 9.7.18
Dawn Chorus and the Infallible Sea is an ambient collaboration project by Marc Ertel + Zach Frizzell from post-rock band, PILLARS. Their self-titled debut album is a compilation of home recordings and field recordings captured between 2015-2018.
The album incorporates ethereal movements, richly layered cascades, and slow-motion soundscapes that summons the listener to a truly atmospheric state of mind. Minimal at its core, Dawn Chorus and the Infallible Sea intentionally set out to create restrained ambient compositions with a sense of impenetrable mystery.
