Erste CD-Verffentlichung auf MIRKO UHLIGs (ex AALFANG MIT PFERDEKOPF) neuem Label, eine reine Ambient / Drone-Compilation die schon beeindruckendes Feedback erhalten hat....


I, Mute Hummings combines the Zen-inspired timelessness of Keith Berry, the circulating guitarspots of Fear Falls Burning, Dronment's welfare mix of vinyl crackling with mumbling ether, Troum's excursions into human dreamscapes and on the other side Column One's fluttering and sawing machinery. In between rest the well balanced works of Jeffrey Roden, Paul Bradley and Steve Jolliffe. Roden creates a whole aural landscape with his bass guitar alone. It's like walking through a drony barnyard. You can simply HEAR the fresh air. It all gets more and more closed with Paul Bradley's contribution. Like Berry's piece this one conjures up floating images - ceaseless waves of drones. Steve Jolliffe - who played on Tangerine Dream's 1978 output "Cyclone" - is an old stager of electronic music and here his wonderful flute-sketch sinks deeper and deeper into the hissing maelstrom of digital glitches. But manages to reach the saving shore where Richard Lainhart - a pioneer of Moog-music - closes this collection with an exclusive rework of his stunning "White Nights". [label info]

Alles in allem ist I, mute hummings fast schon ein Lehrstck der Drone Musik, dass das Genre in einem breitem Spektrum zeigt und vielleicht sogar durch Abwechslung etwas zugnglicher macht. [Terrorverlag]

It's one of the best gatherings of drone-manipulating artists that I've ever heard [...] the one to have at all costs. [Touching Extremes]
