ʼCathedral Pinesʼ is Joseph Lawerence Clarkʼs debut album under his maiden name.
After having quietly self released a handful of compositions in the past, The Rochester, NY native steps up on Vaknar with a compelling barrage of immersive and impactful soundscapes, created using tape looped guitars, violin and synths processed through various samplers and pedals (many of which were built through his own company, Adventure Audio).
Cathedral Pines is made up of two, 20 minute long pieces of densely interwoven ambient, synth and noise laden layers, resulting in an enthralling debut that feels compellingly versatile, cerebral and substantially in-depth.

The Disintegration Tapes comparisons with Spirits Drifting are granted for sure but to me, it acts as what I'd call "a recovery cover"; a version of the song that has repaired itself after its disintegration to sound truly comforting and uninterrupted melodically. Both tracks make for some of MFS's finest work. Mork
