A Very Long Way From Anywhere Else

JG Ballard is dead. The land was barren before and is barren still. The space between destination and destination is simply in our heads. We are filled with space and sounds from memory. When we are going nowhere fast this music keeps the pace nice and slow. Melancholic but not too sad, ruminating but not too sullen, uplifting without exaggeration, flowing like tattered ribbons blown from trumpets, trembling like a Theramin in the wind, acoustic and meta, symphonic, drums without repetition. Stasis charged with static electricity. Ambient with a blast.

Haunted Weather

World reknowned musicologist David Toop comes back offering a much stranger world than he let us discover with his seemingly tamer 'Ocean of Sound'. This compilation could have been called "Valley of the Lost Chip". 32 electronic tracks expose the rich extremes found in music being made in our age of the laptop.
