On Guild of the Asbestos Weaver, Alexander Tucker sculpts minimalist motifs into deep drone constructions, weaving dense layers of maximalist sound to powerful disorienting effect. Through inventive studio manipulation he conjures vivid preternatural landscapes from a synthesis of acoustic instruments and electronic sources. The resulting pieces occupy a unique territory somewhere between paranormal electronics and cosmos-seeking psychedelia, standing as some of Tucker?s heaviest and most hallucinogenic work to date.



Guild of the Asbestos Weaver leans further into Alexander Tucker?s fascination with science fiction and cosmic horror, bringing it closer into the orbit of his work as a visual artist. He explains, ?With this album I wanted to join together separate key influences that have affected my work, from science fiction and cosmic horror comics, film and literature to minimalist, drone and dream music composition. My aim was to weave these elements into repetitious cycles that guide the listener into worlds both uncanny and familiar.? The album title, taken from Ray Bradbury?s Fahrenheit 451, refers to the underground opposition of the dystopian novel?s totalitarian government ideology. Rather than carrying any explicit political message, Guild of the Asbestos Weaver seeks to simply spark the imagination, envisioning an alternate past and new future as the first step towards realising them.



Guild of the Asbestos Weaver captures Tucker?s boundless vision as a composer. In focusing on the more arcane aspects of his sound, and giving individual ideas and motifs more space to grow and evolve, Alexander Tucker has made his most immersive and intoxicating music yet.
