The departure from Volume 1 starts here! Found sounds, field recordings and and more, echoing to you from way back in 1992. Straight out of Achen! Second in this on-going series of collaborative works recorded in the early 90’s by christoph heemann & jim o’rourke, later conceptually aligned with the mythos of noel scott “walker” engel ... contrasting vol. 1’s “synth freakout” bluster entirely, this is instead a single, extended musique concrète piece (heavily reminiscent of luc ferrari’s later “east-west news” series of travelogue pieces) concerned with tape-slown ambiences, prickly percussive installations, and some lovely, reedy droning (the sound-sample covers most of that in roughly reverse order) ...killer disc ; we’re all blessed if these issues of two-decade-old music continue to spring forth in regular intervals ...
