Portal/Well is the deeply melodic, dense and wildly unhinged debut album from Insect Ark.
Written, performed and recorded in complete solitude by Dana Schechter (Angels Of Light / Bee And Flower), in her Brooklyn studio, Portal/Well finds its voice in the haunting groans of lap steel guitars, stalking basses, insistent drum programming and deep synthesiser oscillations.
Shards of light, lustrous shadows and more.
