The Skylark Café & Club Presents

Venetian Veil



Ambient Goth



VENETIAN VEIL is a creative duo from Sacramento, California, who, over the course of the last decade, have released a string of EPs and albums exploring a vast array of dark and ethereal sounds. Having started playing together in 2007 in the experimental metal band (waning), Jim Willig (Lament Cityscape, Cura Cochino, Audioemetic) and Susan Hunt began releasing music as Venetian Veil in 2010. From the gothic kosmische instrumentals of their Conjurings audio cassette series and live film scores, to their more song-oriented albums fusing ambient, goth, and shoegaze sounds, the band has actualized their own virtual world of sound: the sounds of sleep transmissions from the minds of another world. With their upcoming mini-album THE LANDS OF THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, Venetian Veil weaves a tapestry of sound that could be described as minimilist-Morricone meets post-goth folk with the patience of Steve Von Till and the melancholic worldly beauty of Dead Can Dance. The album will enter the land of the living via Dune Altar on 11.11.2022. Make a wish...
