☼ Half Makeshift - Omen [November 2008 re-post]



Nathan Michael began recording music in 2004 at the age of 18 using several different names for his creations before finally settling on Half Makeshift. The name Half Makeshift is taken from the song 'Makeshift Swahili' by This Heat and '½ The Sky' by Henry Cow.
Nathan creates his music in a sort of collage fashion, often times recording a small piece of music, perhaps only a minute long, saving it and coming back to it months later with more pieces and then linking them all together. Half Makeshift is often classified as Post-Rock, Drone, Sludge and Ambient all rolled into one.
Working as one 50+ minute track, but separated into four parts, “Omen” (beautifully mastered by James Plotkin) subtly shifts through different emotions and feelings that create a general overall mood for the entire picture; a mood that can be quite soothing and comforting, yet at the same time virulent and uneasy, and ultimately eerie and chilling. Through incredible use of melody via light guitar strums and guitar ambience, melded with waves of static bursts, ivory key tappings that create the build-up that will inevitably come in the form of massive heavy electronic drone rumblings, “Omen” is an observation within such a genre that will bring more awareness to the wonder that is (the now defunct) Half Makeshift.
