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)

«…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.
