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.
The cryptically familiar Ice Guild Kaiser recently emerged from his workshop with this purpose-built addition to the popular “Rain” series.
The Goat Encompasses EP
Dark, atmospheric improvisations on heavily effected guitar are at the heart of “The Goat Encompasses” by Ice Guild Kaiser.
The Past is Foreign
Further exploration of atmospheric improvisations on heavily effected guitar characterize this sequel to “The Goat Encompasses.”
Ice Guild Kaiser’s second Rain album combines nature sounds, gentle synth loops, string instruments and processed sounds, the sum of which is a meditative soundscape.
The Ossuary Improvisations
Ice Guild Kaiser unveils a long-form experimental work, combining aspects of ambient and instrumental free improvisation, a serene memento mori.
