This albums contains everything from summerish meadows to sousing around in a small 1 engine bi-plane at 1500 meters with distorted bleeps to match and more Domp-Damp's and Dhums-Dhums' than you can shake a stick at! Yay!
This is music that should give you some good inner eye sequences.
The first track, (ER)
starts really low - like an hart beat. Domp-Damp-Domp-Damp-Domp-Damp-Domp... Not human - but a music hart. And then the bass arrives. Slowly other instruments are slowly entering your ear canal and slowly further into your brain - slowly. As a litmus test I have played this track both at home, on several dark and rainy nights. During the preparation of one of my public talks, while writing a heavy duty technical paper - and even while blasting down the road in my not-so-noise-isolated-car-with-bad-speakers. This track works very well in all these environments. The instruments are distinct in their own right. Not many hidden details - that might in fact be the reason why this track works so good ...
... or ...
... maybe an even simpler explanation is that the Domp-Damp-Domp-Damp drumming by Ingar Zach
