|Night Music: Field Recordings from the Edge of Hell
||[Feb. 2nd, 2011|03:29 pm]
This album is eight hours long. That’s right. An eight-hour piece of ambient drone music broken into thirteen chapters. The album’s name, FIELD RECORDINGS FROM THE EDGE OF HELL, is such a perfectly fitting descriptor of the sound that I have little more to add. I’m only 90 minutes in and I swear I can hear organs playing from inside a pit. The liner notes read:
Every effort was made to preserve the original quality of this recording. The shifting, actively oppressive nature of the environment had an irreversible effect on both the equipment and personnel. As a result, some damage was permanent.
Wonderful. You can click through and buy it — as I am going to — or just leave warrenellis.com up in a tab and stream it here by activating the widget below.
