Venus Vulture

Venus Vulture is the New Zealand soundscape artist Sean Monaghan.

The soundscapes are usually deep meditative works with occasional snatches of melody or field recordings - Venus Vulture tracks invite contemplation at just a slight remove from everyday reality.

Soundscapes by Venus Vulture have appeared on the Resting Bell (out of print), and Test Tube netlabels, and on the Turkbytone Rekkids imprint, as well as on several podcast compilations (Still Audio, NNTS) and scattered other places.

Sean is also a writer, with numerous publishing credits, and his science fiction novel 'The Rotated' is serialised at Infinite Windows. His works can also be found at Amazon.
