Anduin - Abandoned In Sleep - SMTG LIMITED 12” 33 rpm
Plenty of found-sound live collaborations of Jonathan Lee with Dag Rosenquist, Xela, Stephen Vitiello, Svarte Greiner, and more. Bonus CD with 2 more tracks at end.
4:54 The fade of the sound, the apparition of sound (fade in), repetition of appearance, overlap overlap, overbearing overtones, geared to halfway listening, inner ear designs, the subtle presence of a nautilus shell structure, in a five corner star tone configuration. Voice layering, bead shaking instruments, synthesis of wind whistle, beach-water break, tones like deep woodwinds. Tapping or clicking found sounds. Hum and bassy string note pulsing.
4:36 Flickering, wind treated artifacts. Pulses of the cinematic, overture type. Pulses brought to bear on empty, texture-filled, spaces. Inner clusters of tone with a pulse synth bass over-ward, and harmonica at the edges.
5:24 Caves, dust and mice; abandoned or ethereal space; a video game like Myst; a long period of time like a summer; or an in-between like the space suggested by inanimate movements or the interminable reception of antenna television now gone. Ambient/drone/instrumental unison harmonies.
2:20 Horizon-explorative power drone tones.
3:38 Collage of meditation instrumentation.
3:08 Dark tech, music box tonalities.
4:53 Lone footsteps, a click from a lighter, aspiration, a background of various tones is made, resonation and development. A light in dark effect.
5:15 Harmonica appears, a trumpet, in clear open air style, and a watery synth bass line takes prominence, keys in alternation.
4:26 Shoe-gaze blues. Dark ambient.
2:32 Left for the imagination.
