“Ghost Box had a defined aesthetic from formation; Julian House explained that …the best way to put our stuff out was to start a label.. There was such a richness to the references we both shared, not just musical.. It made sense that we could put releases out which had this complete world attached to them.. A set of things united by a design identity, fragments of real or imagined books, collections of images, films, links… Something people can become lost in and want to be a part of.. Releases on the label (presently encompassing The Focus Group, Eric Zann, Belbury Poly, and The Advisory Circle) tend to share a common design aesthetic – all record covers so far have been by Julian House (there is an acknowledged debt to the iconic design of sixties Penguin Books paperbacks). There are shared elements in sound, too; Ghost Box artists tend to draw heavily on influences such as musique concrète, library music, and 1970s soundtracks. Several critics have noticed a melancholic or nostalgic element to the Ghost Box sound as well, prompting comparison to the shorter, ‘interlude’ tracks of Boards of Canada, or similar folk or psychedelia-influenced electronic musicians” – source Wikipedia.
