The Cube of Unknowing is an alter-ego of Francis Heery, a composer and sound artist currently based in Berlin. Burren Mount takes its name and inspiration from a mysterious, anachronous, semi-abandoned hotel overlooking the waterfront in Salthill, Galway.
Conceived as a partly-decomposed mixtape, the album weaves together tattered fragments of dissolving synths, blurred rhythms and other sonic visitations.
The result evokes the romanticism of late night end-credits, displaced soundtracks, straight-to-video erotica, unidentified radio transmissions and covert experiments in the basement of the local ESB station . . . .
