"Zone Of Avoidance" is a music of microworlds. Think of a world contained in a diode lamp. What kind of sounds electrons could generate in there? Think of a man who extracts sounds from such microscopic elements. Do you think of Aube? Listen to this and discover Red Fog.
There are vibrating drones inside small electric devices. There are energetic waves, electromagnetic fields, electric discharges. There is a different world with a different life inside - vibrant, gurgling, breathing with rare gases under pressure.
Red Fog returns to DNA Production with the full-length work which contains cold mechanistic low-frequency drone ambient made in an usual manner for Red Fog. But you could find differences if you listen to some of the previous Red Fog work.
"Zone Of Avoidance" is much heavy and complex in sound. At first it looks like straight drone ambient with tons of low frequencies pressing ears and brain. Further listening reveals a background hidden behind these droning soundscapes. There is that kind of drone ambient with fine touches of electroacoustic, industrial noises and seamlessly combined sound canvases provoking bouts of agoraphobia.
Itís not too friendly nor easy for listening but definitely Red Fog's "Zone Of Avoidance" shows a great degree of balance and complexity in efforts of creating straightforward and intense drone ambient.
