More Info

"Nocturnal Emissions have been exploring the uncharted no mans land between experimental sound performance, pop music, and spoken word poetry for over 30 years. This live recording of a Nocturnal Emissions show in November 2011 is proof of the fact that theyre still constantly evolving. Deceptively bucolic ambient soundscapes give way to darker undercurrents in the bass. The 40-minute set is characterised by subtle, almost imperceptible transformations, when a subdued pulsing that began as a flanged synthesizer chord suddenly turns out to be an actual beat that one could - well, not dance, possibly, but tap ones foot to.

Compost manages the feat that the music appears to be rather calm, never aggressive in any way, but leaves you with a mounting sense of tension that you cannot quite put your finger on. As if there is something going on in darker corners of the music, your brain, or whatever exciting to listen to. Compost was recorded on 17 November, 2011 at Die Ganze Bckerei in Augsburg, Germany. Organised by Attenuation Circuit, the concert featured a performance by Nigel Ayers, the remaining founding member of Nocturnal Emissions. While most of Nocturnal Emissions previous releases can be found on www.earthlydelights.co.uk, this album offers a glimpse of the current state of Nigels work as an electronic composer and solo performer."
