The Book of Melancholia is the second album by Mi Cosa de Resistance (aka Fernando Perales, Buenos Aires, Argentina) alongside The Melancholic Ladies Orchestra (aka Catherine C. (Australia), Margaret C. (Ireland) and Veronica C. (Canada).
Formed in 2015 The Melancholic Ladies Orchestra is a very peculiar transcontinental collaborative project. The members of the group barely know each other and they have never been in the same city, continent o recording studio and it is almost impossible to track their activities, which remain basically as a private and secret musical practice based on a restrictive set of rules. Although they might seem as a gloomy and rare trio of women, they consider themselves as 'the spice girls in reverse', a definition that I never wanted to explore more deeply.
This album has been produced collectively, tailored with tiny and rusty samples within a really short period of time (those were 2 of the rules) during the last month and it is the very first of a fruitful musical exchange between MCR and TMLO

Steve Roach's music generally falls into a number of sonic themes. There's his "earthly" side, which often involves rhythms with synths or drums. There's his "inner space" side, which is more abstract in feel. Eclipse Mix is an example of his "outer space" side, where the feel is more celestial. The phrase that comes to mind here is "heavy luminescence". It gets surprisingly intense at times and works as both foreground and background music. fyeahmetal
