C.W. Vrtacek - When Heaven Comes to Town (LP)
When Heaven Comes to Town was Charles O’Meara’s 5th release under his impossible-to-pronounce C.W. Vrtacek guise, released on Chris Cutler’s ReR Megacorp label in 1989. Although American in origin, the album has a deeply EU sound, at least to my ears, sounding like a lost Herzog soundtrack. Preparing the Bridge for Heaven, must be one of the most moving pieces of ambient music ever recorded, I have to stop what I’m doing and enter the fuzzy void of warm melancholy every time I hear it. Essential.
