The producer Marcus Schmickler, who most often uses the pseudonym Pluramon when recording his own solo projects, creates these roomy wall-of-sound landscapes that have a contradictorily slight, ghostly essence; they're reserved and measured yet filled with an overwhelming gravitas, like the meek sleekness of IDM spliced with the gravelly melancholia of post-rock.

In the early 2000s, he recorded an album, Dreams Top Rock, with Julee Cruise of Twin Peaks fame. With her vocals as the gravitational center, the resultant album wound up being a type of studio-wonk shoegaze with a darkly psychedelic edge. 

Go back further and find earlier efforts that assumed a found-sound collage aesthetic, one informed more by Negativland than My Bloody Valentine. Throughout, though, he's always been mercurial, a voice that bounds through various styles, genres, approaches while always maintaining a certain muted, morose color palette.
