Experimental tape, loop, pro-tools manipulators: soundscapes, loopy, lush, vaguely rhythmic and fucked up, nothing harsh or especially noisy. All excellent, tasteful, unpretentious yet artistic and composed. From Norway or some godforsaken place like that.

1) low end drone builds to layers, modeled voices, vaguely rhythmic, heavily looped
2) looped rhythmic “melodic” noise w/ wavering electronics, minimal yet lush, grows into modeled looped voice ambience/hypnotism (5:30)
3) dramatic minimalism, noisy in places, dark, develops blippy rhythm near end
4) looped min, deep ambience
5) hypnotic minimalism, builds noisy rhythmic (7:30)
6) building loops over low drone, electro rhythmic feel takes over and dominates (6:30)
7) looping high synth, lush and rhythmic
8) acoustic guit playing sets this one apart but not really: still lush loopiness w/ some voc samps, get noisy near end
