Cody Drasser releases debut solo dark ambient album, 
‘The Fate Of Things’

Austin, TX December 11, 2012 — Peacock Window Recordings founder and operator, Cody Drasser, is proud to announce the arrival of his deeply immersive and dark ambient debut project entitled ‘The Fate Of Things’. Mastered by John Stillings of Steel Hook Prostheses, ‘The Fate Of Things’ will appeal to fans of Lull, Yen Pox and Sleep Research Facility, among others.

An Austin-based sound and visual artist, Cody Drasser has been a genre-crossing musician for over 20 years now. With his roots in the Long Island death metal scene of the 90’s, his ruthless guitar technique and complex songwriting were foundational to the signature sound of Afterbirth, a band that is widely recognized as an early originator of the Brutal Death Metal style. Earlier this year, Drasser began collaborating with artist Ben Roe, Jr. to create Caulbearer. Their ambient/noise soundscapes came together in the mysterious and droning ‘Haunts’, a Peacock Window production that was mastered by James Plotkin.

The origin of ’The Fate of Things’ was nearly a decade ago while Drasser lived in Queens and Brooklyn and began amassing a vast library of recordings – both original musical compositions and captured field samples. Experimental processing, refinement and final arrangement were completed in the heat of Austin’s summer in 2012. This progression of building, layering, evolving, experiencing the inevitable changes in life circumstances and seasons and the equally unavoidable fading of memory culminate in a masterfully rich audio fate. Drasser says, “It is a dark ambient album that deals not just with the vast limits of outer space and the known universe, but also contends with how the passage of time eventually erodes one’s memory to the point where one can no longer be sure that the memory is even true.”

Peacock Window Recordings is continuing to expand boundaries in ambient and experimental music with exciting new albums in the works for 2013. Demos are being accepted for consideration of additional 2013 releases.
