Igl00 & lost-radio – «Untitled Scenes III»

Igl00 & lost-radio - «Untitled Scenes III»Cat.# … DNA 163
Release Date … 30.10.2014
Genre … Isolationism, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Isolationist project Igl00 continues his «Untitled Scenes» line with the third in a row new work called simply «Untitled Scenes III». This time Igl00 shares the album with another ambient project lost-radio: odd tracks are by Igl00 and even ones are by lost-radio.

In «Untitled Scenes III» Igl00′s isolationist approach has changed, and his two tracks sound louder, brighter, more expressive. Now it looks like closer to elemental drone ambient textures balancing upon vast cloudy fields of cold isolationist hum. While the basic drones accompanied by obsessively repeated rustles flow free in «Scene VII», in «Scene IX» amorphous cold drones slowly absorb simple harmonies’ remnants.

lost-radio’s part of the album is less isolationist and much closer to straight drone ambient – a noisy reverberant drone ambient, if you like. There are same amorphous but much more aggressive drones form low-frequency flow with ultra slow development, and both tracks look like frozen stream with a few tiny foreign sound elements encapsulated.

Tracklisting:

  1. Igl00 – Scene VII (07:32)
  2. lost-radio – Scene VIII (08:00)
  3. Igl00 – Scene IX (05:35)
  4. lost-radio – Scene X (08:04)

Red Fog – «Exodus To The Land Of The Drone»

Red Fog - «Exodus To The Land Of The Drone»Cat.# … DNA 162
Release Date … 21.10.2014
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«Exodus To The Land Of The Drone» looks like another move in Red Fog’s drifting between severe uneasy drone ambient and something like «micro-sound» ambient which was presented in previous (for DNA Production) Red Fog’s work called «Zone Of Avoidance».

The title speaks for itself: here Red Fog turns to his trademark, to the lengthy recurrent loops of heavy-breathing drones which soak everything around with low-frequency rumbling. Sometimes these drone layers find themselves massively pierced with crisp micro sounds of industrial origin. Sometimes they overwhelm, stun, deafen with multiply resonated hum fragments well-mixed and thrown straight in your face.

Each track presents its own sound snapshot of an inorganic world living its life quietly or loud. Find there soundtracks to various processes which occur right now in a tiny stone, metal piece, liquid drop or in a vast star system.

Tracklisting:

  1. Red Fog – Castle Of Condensation (17:03)
  2. Red Fog – The Quiet Magnetar (16:14)
  3. Red Fog – Volans Disruption (14:38)
  4. Red Fog – Cinder Petals (18:24)

Marc-Henri Arfeux – «Chromatic Travels»

Marc-Henri Arfeux - «Chromatic Travels»Cat.# … DNA 161
Release Date … 26.09.2014
Genre … Abstract, Electroacoustic
Type … FLAC Lossless

««Chromatic Travels» explores the birth of light and colours in parallel with the infinite journey of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 beyond the borders of the solar system. This series of studies in electroacoustic music express the mystery of our universe at the core of unknown.

Heliopause: Heliopause was by pure chance finished composing the very day the news was given Voyager 1 had officially crossed the heliopause, the border of the solar system. I was very touched by this coincidence since this piece precisely expressed the journey of the Voyager space probes mission and their journey through the heliopause, the last edge before the interstellar regions.

Siralia: As soon as I had the news about Voyager 1 entrance in interstellar space, I composed this second piece expressing the mystery of this new journey in the unknown side the little space probe was the first human ship to explore it. For me, this was a great source of emotion since through Voyager 1, it is a part of mankind who now explores these regions of universe. The title comes from the name of the double star Sirius, one of of our «close» neighbours in the galaxy. It also refers to Stockhausen’s opera entitled “Sirus” as a poetic echo.

Study Of Black Matter: Our universe is supposed to be partly composed of a mysterious substance, invisible and exactly inverse to matter: black matter. This piece explores the spiritual essence of this substance as a secret inner light non one can feel, and as the source of all vision, light and colours experience veiled by this enigmatic reality.

Study Of White Matter: In this piece I imagined black matter’s core is composed of an enigmatic white matter, the white being the chromatic source of every colour.

Chromata: Chromata explores the birth of colours out of light, the opening of life and beauty through this mysterious source.

Monochromies: Monochromies are supposed to be one single colour objects, for instance in painting. Here the monochrome essence becomes secretly a principle of infinite chromatic creation, a symbol of the deep mystery of everything.

This album ends with a composition dedicated to the French electroacoustic music Bernard Parmegiani, one of my favourites, who died the 21th of November 2013. He had composed a long piece untitled «Creation of the World». My own composition is a ritual to celebrate him and accompany him to the mysterious border where the encounter with the white spiritual substance of everything begins. It is a way to end this album with a journey of soul in the unknown of the infinite.»

«There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.»
Carl Jung

Dark ambient can be ominous at the moment and slumberous a second later. It changes elusively in a single track, tracks form changeable atmosphere which keeps listeners waiting for another turn.

Two men, Ajna and Dronny Darko rework their selected tracks in this way and bring to the spotlight the best features of the projects: post-industrial mechanistic soundscapes, droning waves, obscure atmosphere and viscous transparent layers including sounds of various nature and demeanour.

Tracklisting:

  1. Ajna – Hour Of The Wolf (Remixed by Dronny Darko) (13:00)
  2. Dronny Darko – Imponderable Light (Reworked by Ajna. Part 2) (11:11)
  3. Ajna – The Strange Demeanor Of Solitude II (Remixed by Dronny Darko) (12:02)
  4. Dronny Darko – Imponderable Light (Reworked by Ajna. Part 1) (09:45)

Kolpakopf – «And Death Shall Have No Dominion»

Kolpakopf - «And Death Shall Have No Dominion»Cat.# … DNA 159
Release Date … 07.07.2014
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«And death shall have no dominion», Dylan Thomas said. Snatches of indistinct tunes, that humming in the head when bitter words are said and heard, and despair comes in stead of anxiety… Kolpakopf was there with his wordless hymn to fallen and reborn. In pains of loss he fell and then arose, another man. Some scars are left deep in the heart but who cares. When cries are over, just stand up! You, man who shall never be the same henceforth.

«Faith in their hands shall snap in two, And the unicorn evils run them through; Split all ends up they shan’t crack», that Welshman said. In clinking hum Kolpakopf answers: «And death shall have no dominion». Stop crying, live your life until you’re alive, a man with bleeding heart. Pain will be soothed, scars will be healed when doomed one passes away. Now you know that death shall have no dominion.

  1. Kolpakopf – Untitled (25:00)
