Been a little while since I’ve featured Evan Caminiti, but this Bandcamp Friday saw a lovely longform release from him in the form of “Gleam.” The track, composed of his patient, prodding guitar passages and clarinet moans, was released on Caminiti’s label Dust Editions. Much like contemporary Steven R. Smith, operating under the Ulaan Khol or Ulaan Passarine monikers, Caminiti captures a darker, cinematic scope to the guitar. “Gleam” wraps its fingers around the listener, imparting dread and trepidation that comes on slow, but holds the heart fast in its grip. The clarinet passages in particular corrode the consciousness, darkness leaking into the fissures of focus from all sides until its too late to turn back. Been a fan since the Barn Owl days, but Evan’s still crafting pieces that conjure worlds within their run times.
