"To Ancient Noise" is a compilation of manipulated environmental sounds. Whether field recordings, found sounds, radio snippets, or other odd recorded artifacts of audio, these elements are worked by sound artists in interesting and often startling ways. In some cases the sounds may not be processed much at all, but are rather selected for their rhythmic virtues. In other cases, sounds have been layered and heavily effected into lush and alien soundscapes, dark and mysterious. With...

The Webbed Hand "Rain" series in now graced by a contribution from Djinnestan. Much like the shorter works of Djinnestan, this 74-minute piece is subtle and enchanted. As if in a dream you find yourself strolling in a fairytale forest, dark and misty, peopled by the figments of childhood imaginings. This album is ideal for meditation, trance-work, and quiet activities. It is recommended that you play it at low volume, as it is meant to be listened to peripherally, not directly....

A project which began as a spinoff of Saluki Regicide, but which took on a personality of its own as a pattern began to emerge. This is a peculiar sound art of a very diverse nature, but unified by the presence of Shortwave signals. These bizarre tracks may bend your mind, if you are in a susceptible state. An eclectic CD alternating between abstract and rhythmic, this body of work is dedicated to those who get the warm-n-fuzzies from hunching over shortwave radios, grooving on static and...

The strength of this work is the skillful use of processed acoustic instruments (djembe, bowed guitar, environmental sounds) woven into a richly illustrative tapestry that engages the mind without overstimulating it. Here sounds happen in washes and highlights, like some kind of impressionistic watercolor painting. It is simultaneously dark and uplifing....
