David Jackman – A Cloud of Light CD



Die Stadt, Germany 2024

“A Cloud Of Light” is the fourth album in the DAVID JACKMAN / ORGANUM ELECTRONICS release series on Die Stadt, and the first under his own name. The work sees him returning to calmer fields of sound which could already be heard on the acclaimed D. JACKMAN ‘Herbstsonne’ (DS119) from 2019, and the following JACKMAN ‘Silence In That Time’ (DS123) from 2020. Again the sounds of Tampura, Organ, Piano, Bells and Crows are the chosen sound sources, overlaid and structured to form a tapestry of shifting textures.

Recorded in 2023 and edited by Alan Jones at RMS Studios in South London, the CD comes in a 4-panel Digisleeve with graphic artwork by Jonathan Coleclough.

UK-based composer and visual artist David Jackman began his career in the late 1960s in the experimental group Scratch Orchestra, co-founded by Cornelius Cardew. He started recording solo work in the late 1970s, mostly on self-released cassettes in very small numbers. In the early 1980s he established his main project, Organum, which eventually evolved into a new version under the name ORGANUM ELECTRONICS in 2019. Since 2019 five albums were released by Japanese imprint Siren Records, followed by (so far) four albums on Die Stadt.

This is the fourth of seven albums which are scheduled for release on Die Stadt until the end of 2024. Apart from several albums under the ORGANUM ELECTRONICS moniker these will also include works under David Jackman’s own name. A subscription to the complete series including an exclusive Bonus album is available directly from Die Stadt.
