More Info

Drei Stcke mit tiefen, rauschenden, luftig-atmenden Drones, die immer wieder "gefttert" werden durch field recordings, die erkennbar und in Loops auftreten, von rumpelnden Knirsch-, Knarz- & Reib-Geruschen, unheimlich tnenden "schwarzen Vgeln" und anderen Tieren in der Nacht, das ist "dark drone ambient" der komplett ohne die blichen Klischees auskommt und trotzdem bannt & fasziniert !

Many of the sound tailorings used in these works were resultant from source material consisting of several recording sessions involving a flock of black birds that routinely roost within the building architecture in the downtown district of Kansas City at night. I found this series of recordings to be absolutely fascinating, as the chatter and cross talk between this rather charged group of birds seemed to assume a definitive dialogue, as they seemed to banter back and forth endlessly. Given this, I began manipulating them further and integrating them into other recordings. As I began to work more and more with these pieces, I felt there was a sense of almost primeval sophistication to the quality of these recordings; a direct contradiction however the notion of this became the source from which the names for the track listings emerged. Confidence, cunning and endurance: All for the terror that sings sweetly to you in the night.
Christopher McFall, 2008, Many Thanks To God, Asher, Juan Jose Calarco and Gregory Buttner.
