released June 16, 2013

"That Boards of Canada feeling of nostalgia and harmed tape reels comes to mind....The other two tracks are more reminiscent of Gas’ Königsforst (1999), if not via their tonal appearance, then due to the concept of the woods as a forlorn place of shelter that should be worshipped and respected, but not conquered at night." -- www.ambientexotica.com/ambrev240_cinchel_nightswoods/ Bjorn Werkmann @ ambientexotica

"Intricate patterns and overall weirdness help to keep it so compelling. Rhythm almost appears to form but cinchel uses the rhythm as a melody, akin to a long lost Autechre or Phoenicia track. For the finale is ‘reflecting pools’. Moments of it conjure up images of absolute infinity. Nothing stops it as it explores every texture within its capability." -- beachsloth.tumblr.com/post/57741713226/cinchel-quiet-nights-lonesome-woods-7-1 Beach Sloth

"The music is THICK. It’s layered with so many levels of sound, so many various types of sound and so much finesse that it astounds me. This isn’t your typical chill out album, this is your lay-in-a-field-at-midnight-and-watch-the-stars-during-a-meteor-shower type of album." -- tuningintoobscure.wordpress.com/2013/06/27/ambient-bliss-cinchel-quiet-nights-lonesome-woods/ Tuning into Obscure

"This is the only bandcamp-only album this year I was really knocked out by. Heard a song on Jon Solomon’s show and looked it up. Pure ambient electronics that neither goes in a New Agey feel-good direction or a Harsh Noise feel-bad one. Forget trying to listen to this one on laptop speakers at all. I don’t think I even have big speakers good enough to do this justice, but it’s really nice on earbuds that can handle the sub-bass" -- www.jimhaku.com/blog/the-2013-post/ Jim Haku




cinchel Chicago, Illinois

I am a Chicago based musician working with guitar, effects and laptop to create abstract ambient music that is both minimal and dense. My main focus has been the interaction of sounds/notes with themselves.With only the use of delay, layering and distortion I attempt to make a lot of guitars no longer sound like guitars.I like to call this minimal dense music for that reason. ... more
