(Idea) Used CD $10.00

Christoph Heemann and Andrew Chalk’s soundtrack to regions of the deep sea where the fish need their own light sources and the sediment makes navigation nearly impossible pours out forty-one minutes of dark, understated minimalism and auditory hallucinations of numerous unheard sounds: the underwater songs of whales, radio static, labored breathing, rattlesnakes, the quiet hiss of air escaping a tiny opening at the top of a coffee pot. Swooshes of white noise are peppered with muted clangs and scrapes of what could be a piano or manipulated guitar while electronic glitches dance with high-pitched shrieks of sound. Dense drones come and go in relatively short durations, while scattered noises of acoustic and electronic origins play in the mix and a saxophone is quietly stretched to the limits of its palette of sounds.
