M87


M87 was created in 1995 by Huw Davies, inspirationally catalysed by a television documentary about Black Holes. Originally aiming to create music which expressed the strangeness and extremity of these elusive celestial objects, and as much aided by his extraordinary technical level as a guitar player as limited by his inexistent technical level on any other instrument, Davies spent over a year developing and perfecting notation, playing, and recording Read more on Last.fm
M87 was created in 1995 by Huw Davies, inspirationally catalysed by a television documentary about Black Holes. Originally aiming to create music which expressed the strangeness and extremity of these elusive celestial objects, and as much aided by his extraordinary technical level as a guitar player as limited by his inexistent technical level on any other instrument, Davies spent over a year developing and perfecting notation, playing, and recording techniques which would enable him to produce an alien orchestral sound with nothing but his 13 guitars and a bit of recording equipment. As the musical concept expanded, the tirelessly prolific Davies recorded several hours of material (including a titanic 78-minute piece), samples of which were sent to a wide variety of record labels. Reactions were quite uniform in their incomprehension and disbelief, which resulted in a mixture of triumph and frustration, since no one seemed to know quite what to make of the music and therefore no one, seemed to know quite whether to offer him a deal.

In the summer of 1997, however, Davies contacted Supernal Music following an advertisement in a mail order catalogue, where the label expressed interest in bands inspired by Astronomical, Astrophysical, and Cosmological subjects. Supernal Music's reaction was one of comprehension and disbelief, which resulted in a record deal. "Noctilucent Threnody" is the first of a planned ten albums, most of the material for which has already been recorded. The latter will not see the light under Supernal Music, however.
