This four track release is a remix of the AZ Blender mp3 release (also on earlabs) using primarily Akira Rabelais' 'argeiphontes lyre', which i believe is a software program.
Arranged in a formulaic way (track 1 is one minute, track 2 is 2 minutes etc.) this is an exercise in grey, with only occasionally the original material being discernable-which is the human voice, otherwise the bulk of the sounds are waves of controlled static. The focus is on moving these monochromatic sounds through space with fades and volume level adjustments to arrange the material. Track three is my favorite, moving from silence to what sounds like metallic insect wings flapping between speakers. One of the more austere works by Freiband.
