Music for tape loops & low grade cassettes, field recordings, short wave, and cheap electronics. Recorded August 2015 - January 2016.

"The cover says this is 'music for tape loops & low grade cassettes, field recordings, short wave and cheap electronics', which sounds like my kind of set-up. On the first side there are three pieces of nine to ten minutes each, and on the other side there is a live recording from December last year, which lasts thirty minutes. There is some difference between the studio and concert approach. In the three studio pieces Surak allows more detail in his music, using an interesting variety of sources, low resolution samples, mechanical sounds, field recordings and a bit of electronics. Surak waves together some beautiful industrial ambience together in these pieces. Which is exactly what he does in concert but it is all a bit more clouded, especially as the music progresses and sound effects seem to take over which add a cover to the music; not unlike the music of Fennesz or Tim Hecker, Surak plays out that wall of sound makes ambient music very gritty and distorted, but which in a live context probably works very well. At home, I am less convinced, I must say. I enjoyed the more delicate three-piece suite on the other side much better, and I wouldn't have minded something similar on the other side." ~ Vital Weekly
