John Kannenberg:

Aestivus (Chiasmos)

This is a split release comprised of seven tracks by Omnid (sometimes known as Albert Casais) and one thirty minute track by John Kannenberg. John Gore is engaged in releasing an ongoing series of splits of which this is the first. This release comes packaged in textured art paper and is limited to 100 copies.

The seven tracks by Omnid were produced by treating sources in the spectral audio processing program Sound Hack. Intriguing rhythmic cutups and drones are the currency here. The overall concept/approach owes much to the microsound school. There are moments of rhythmic and melodic familiarity which devolve into delightful sonic mayhem.

Kannenberg treats us to a single thirty minute journey through an aual vision inspired by the sound of dry heat. Here too is the stamp of microsound and gives the listener plenty to explore. This track is very true to the ambient tradition presenting plenty of unidentifiable hissy sounds within an acutely synthesized frame.
