After a half of a year Igl00 and his collaborator lost-radio continue «Untitled Scenes» series with new work called simply “Untitled Scenes IV”. New work is as short as previous «Untitled Scenes III» and there are some similarities between them. Differences are spotted though but they look like logical development of ideas presented in the previous works.

Igl00’s part remains on the side of minimalism and isolationism wrapped in a veil of unostentatious hum. Two tracks are made in the usual Igl00 manner, this time maybe more chamber-like: less space and details, more transparency and concentrating on main lines of music development.

lost-radio’s part is more diversified. «Scene XII» looks like dense and complex track made in the style very close to drone ambient. On the contrary, «Scene XIV» is much closer to Igl00’s tracks in sound and atmosphere. Here is a lot of noise, the same minimalistic approach and similar isolationist disposition.

Tracklisting:

  1. Igl00 – Scene XI (07:36)
  2. lost-radio – Scene XII (08:11)
  3. Igl00 – Scene XIII (07:02)
  4. lost-radio – Scene XIV (07:13)

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)

«…We had “strayed”, as the Swede put it, into some region or some set of conditions where the risks were great, yet unintelligible to us; where the frontiers of some unknown world lay close about us. It was a spot held by the dwellers in some outer space, a sort of peep-hole whence they could spy upon the earth, themselves unseen, a point where the veil between had worn a little thin…»

This quotation from «The Willows», a story by Algernon Blackwood, is a better description for the atmosphere created by this work. «Ниже нуля (Lower Than Zero)» consists of minimalistic isolationist soundscapes which split up into myriads of noises of uncertain nature. Weird, cold, incomprehensible – it’s something beyond human perception.

Tracklisting:

  1. Igl00 – Ниже Нуля (Lower Than Zero) (18:08)

Igl00 – «Untitled Scenes»

Release Date … 01.12.2013
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Ukrainian isolationist project Igl00 presents his début work «Untitled Scenes» in which he offers three ultra-quiet but very deep drone ambient tracks. They are tranquil and serene and look like slow journey on the edge between dream and reality. Here the mind resets its state and clear residual data to be ready to get consciousness to sleep. No people nor machines are there, just isolation and tranquillity.

Despite cold images used in virtual cover, «Untitled Scenes» isn’t too static and offers a lot of warm sound. Slight movements in the air, vague tapping, remote and barely audible sounds – all these dying day’s melodies form a proper ambience for relaxation and meditation.
