More Info

Already the 14th CDR release in this nice drone / experimental ambient/ field-recording-series (who also offer a big amount of online-release on their website) with extraordinaire packaging. KEVIN KREBS convinces with 9 pieces (55 minutes) of electro-acoustic drone-soundscapes, using field recordings and more "played" concrete elements from instruments or objects at the same time, for a stunning result where one can focus the attention totally. Sometimes the compositions seem to float and stream, at times they appear to be more collaged..... Great album, which really should have more than just 60 listeners..

"The voiceless heart of alchemy is a deepening into metaphor. The resplendent and complex array of colours, animals, and techniques that
initiate transformational processes. A quickening of the leaden world of quotidian experience, unearthing a 'participation mystique' and deconcretizing the symbolic face of the world. 'Alchymy' is an ear placed on the imaginal heart, a dialogue of field recordings, musical fragments, noise and silence: focused yet expansive, complex, subtle and shimmering. A work of archetypal listening. "Even sleepers are workers and collaborators on what goes on in the universe." -- Heraclitus. liner notes by Kevin M. Krebs." [label info]
