The Green Kingdom is Michael Cottone, based in Michigan. His compositions blur the line between soundscape and structure, utilizing a variety of processed acoustic and electronic sources, sampled textures and field recordings. ‘Springhill’ is a new album by The Green Kingdom, following releases on such labels as Dronarivm, Archives and Past Inside The Present.
“This album is about home. Springhill is the name of the neighborhood my family lives in, and in a way, this album is a sonic love letter to our little piece of this earth and its surrounding areas. Little themes to soundtrack our daily existence and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us, but is often easily overlooked. My hope is that it can be the same for your home, wherever that may be.” – says Michael Cottone.
