about

In 2004, a group of musicians and curiosity-seekers went to the Belvidere Theater in Central City, CO because it was rumored to be one of the most haunted buildings in the state. Our initial goal was to attempt to record Electromagnetic Voice Phenomena, but the project eventually took on a much different cast. Our musical performances never succeeded in teasing forth any ghostly voices, but we reassembled the recordings into new compositions that captured the haunted spaciousness of the theater.

That’s where 139 Nevada began

We returned to record in the theater two more times while making these two records. Even if the spirits never raised their voices, we hope they were entertained by our presence.

139 Nevada consists of two discs - Encomiast‘s “Masked Mirror” and "Slam Your Doors In Golden Silence" by The Copper Thieves, a coalition including members of Encomiast and the group Mandible Chatter. Both collections mine the rich sonic reverberations of the Belvidere Theatre - located at 139 Nevada, Central City, CO - but each one takes its own clear path.
