The Advisory Circle is an alias of electronic musician Jon Brooks. Like other acts on the Ghost Box label, Brooks' work as the Advisory Circle channels old British popular music, specifically library music, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and 1970s folk.
Inside his perfectly interlaced synth lines, an air of Cold War nostalgia prevails, the overriding sense that utopian thought has become a past construct. Brooks works quietly, releasing music under varying guises, never looking for attention. This is music that’s longing to be lost just as much as it is to be found, made with a knowledge of how the process of falling out of view can end up coloring works with a unique texture.
Brooks has just released a new album as The Advisory Circle called New Ways of Seeing and it fits perfectly into his canon of “soundtracks for films from an alternate reality”.
