Audio Gourmet - The Opaque Abstractions
TRACK ONE: 'The Mist Before Sunrise'
TRACK TWO: 'Artificial Intelligence'
TRACK THREE: 'The Mist Before Sunrise' (Short-hand edit)
Following on from the Netlabel success on Webbed Hand Records with 'Rusted Dreams', Audio Gourmet provide us with two more pieces of groundbreaking ambient music.
Experimenting with a collection of field recordings, Audio Gourmet have warped these everyday-familiar samples into suffocating, desolate soundscapes.
Simple well-known sounds such as: birds singing, instruments, African drumming, conversations, leaves rustling and more have been warped and twisted into new audio-art that is beyond recognition of its original source.
The soundscapes are 'opaque' - it is difficult to see through and distinguish what was once a very recognisable and familiar collection of sounds.
