    "It seems that his actual ethnomusicologist diploma Will Connor got at Miskatonic University...As you can see, Dr Will Connor managed not only to create perfect illustrative music, but also a separate structure, which is located and develops in Lovecraft like mythology."
    - AlterNation

    "This is music to conduct strange rituals to, maybe some background noise for perusing the Necronomicon and it is well made stuff. It doesn't sound amateurish (as ambient music often times does to me) and it creates a feeling of unease and hidden menace in it's subdued and repetitive nature (a good thing here). 8/10"
    - The Rotting Zombie

    "A highly recommended album, if looking for something creative, intense and deep!! I am looking to hear more from him in future."

about

I am very excited to announce thee re-release of thee debut album from Ethnomusikologist Dr. Will Connor and his solo Elektroakoustik Dark Ambient projekt 'Seesar' on thee Sombre Soniks label, inkluding 23 kopies in a pro CDR 4 panel digipak format!

Thee release, entitled Flight of Raphtontis, features performances on household items, such as "shelf brackets, pot lids, and a bicycle to enhance the extended techniques used with traditional percussion". Many of thee drums that appear on thee album were built by Connor himself as part of his Ethnomusikology research during his Masters and Ph.D. studies. Connor states that thee sounds generated using these instruments emulates both textures promoted by Futurism and thee dark nightmarish kreatures and situations found within thee works of Lovecraft.

From thee Artist:
“The music on the album was created using musical approaches put forth by Italian Futurist Luigi Russolo to honor H. P. Lovecraft, the literary figure regularly cited as being the father of modern horror.
“Both figures have been an extremely important figure in the development of experimental music and literature, both to me personally, and countless other musicians, artists, and writers working today.”
