Prions and Scrapie is the newest chapter of  Nate Scheible’s emotionally rich instrumental sounds. A Cleveland native now living in D.C., Scheible has been involved with multiple bands and projects over the years, but his recent solo work has turned towards glowing tape loops that patiently crumble and swell. Unlike the detached, wallpaper connotations that often come with ambient music, these pieces are anything but anonymous. Listening to Scheible’s rolling waves of synth and tape-derived sounds, you feel like he’s telling you a story from his past or casually sharing something about himself that’s reserved for a trusted friend. The sounds are lush, open and somehow wordlessly vulnerable in a way that music of this kind often reaches for but rarely achieves.
