18 experimental recordings dating from 2000 - 2010 released together under the guise of a debut album called 'Transcendence' as this was the first official public release, despite having several previous albums and ep's that were available to those who know the artist personally.
This music is the conceptual creation of multi-instrumentalist Will Johnstone for his long standing solo project The Corvus Experiment conceived in the mid to late 90's but finally established with the purchase of a recording machine in 1999. Many of the songs on this album are unfinished works, demos, jam tracks and purely experimental pieces, many are instrumentals mainly down to the fact that they were used to develop creativity and to turn in new musical directions, escaping the confines of one genre bands and being able to allow the music to flow more organically. This essentially is a view into the musical mind of this artist, offering a wide variety of his musical palette and abilities across a 10 year void.
The next album, a full studio epic featuring Will performing on acoustic drums for the first time and also featuring Mandolin for the first time will host around 12 songs once complete. This has been an exciting and very difficult project and has seen many obstacles causing delays, however it looks set to see it's first single and respective ep releases between spring and summer 2015.
