Layers have been removed to reveal the subtle details existing underneath. Further processing of Marit Wolters' magical, sound-producing sculptures. Each side of this release showcases different components of the original composition. Paraphysical field recordings, subterranean rumbles, cosmic sounds, and deep drones provide mystical sonic environments for contemplation. Folding and unfolding sonic-spaces. Delicate sounds from the night sky, mingle with rumbles of inner-Earth. The sensation of entering and exiting zones of varying pressure. Phantom psychoacoustics turn the playback system into a device that alters the listening space in most unusual ways. Futuristic sound-art with a beautiful booklet that features images of the art that influenced the soundtrack. Originally presented with Marit Wolter's exhibition in Linz Austria.
"Following Modell’s thrilling change of tack into rapid techno on Captagon in 2019, he again expands his palette here with a subtler fusion of his most ephemeral atmospheric timbres and Marit Wolters’ micro-sound design to endlessly nuanced and evolving/involving degrees. Any semblance of chord structures are less distinct now, smudged into a static but unfathomable infinity where it’s true that still waters run super deep. Patient reception (preferably at night) will be rewarded with a finely gradiated fade into phosphorescing sferics and chasmic infrasound riddled with haptic rustle that fingerprint the breathtaking synthetic environment with a human, or even alien, haptic touch. One for the believers, and followers of anything from Bellows to uon or Pinkcourtesyphone." - Boomkat
