Nurse With Wound - Salt Marie Celeste (2003)
Fleshed out with the gradual addition and subtraction of eerie rattling and ominous creaking sounds, and a forlorn, distant ship's horn, Salt Marie Celeste becomes a masterpiece of tension and atmosphere. Perfectly descriptive of an abandoned (or is it?) sinking ship, at its end the piece is reduced back down to just the drone of the lapping waves that we're finally sinking beneath. A masterfully executed, near-unrivaled highlight in the vast NWW catalogue.
