Ice Guild Kaiser: Your Guide in a Sound Art Innerworld

Ice Guild Kaiser is a recording project of C.P. McDill, a body of aesthetic experimentation which branches off of his primary project, Saluki Regicide, of which the name is an anagram.


Still a relatively new project, this approach has allowed McDill to work with instruments, sounds, and compositional techniques not typically a part of its parent project. Guitars and other string instruments, field recordings, and effects hardware are just a few of the elements introduced into the work of McDill for the first time in these recordings.
