K.M. Krebs - Oneiromancy
"Oneiromancy (the art of foretelling the future through dreams) is an hypnotic ambient journey through the underworld of the unconscious and the dreams which abide therein."
Originally a CD-R release, this ambient trek by Canadian sound artist K.M. Krebs is now a netlabel release on Webbed Hand. Distinguished not only by the remarkable sounds herein, but also very evocative track titles, complemented by detail-rich cover art, this is the sort of album one can spend a lot of time listening to and reflecting on.
Lest I risk redundancy though, allow me to direct your attention to the review in the "Notes" section of this page (below), which describes the album better than I could.
K.M. Krebs has become a well-known and respected artist in the netlabel scene. As K.M. Krebs he recorded the classic "Halberd of Chemistry" (available at Fukk God Records), and as 833-45 he recorded "Solar Cycle 23" which is a popular release at Autoplate Records.
