To celebrate the coming of spring, Aural Films is happy to announce the new release "Venus and Mars" by Jack Hertz. The album features two long-form drone pieces that pay homage to the Earth's neighbor planets.
Venus and Mars are not just the two nearest planets adjacent to Earth. They are symbolic of many things over the ages. The famous painting by Botticelli depicting the Roman gods is said to touch on notions of sensuality, love, play pleasure and pain.

A sparse, deeper, and more quiet drone work from the master. By leaving the "drone" far in the background, this work allows your mind to wonder blissfully on the breeze that accompanies it. Brian Bourassa
