All those who're loving their Ambient music dark and experimental, sometimes drone-influenced and more un-easy than releaxing should check out the latest split CDr released via the UK-based Dark Meadow Recordings which sees Dao De Noize, Sascha Müller and Syrinx on a journey through fields of sounds that wouldn't even referred to as music by some. Whilst Dao De Noize's track "2 Stars" has a kind of sacred, ancient feel due to the use of what sounds like field recorded church bells and dark chorals behind a meandering curtain of static noize whilst Sascha Müller provides two tracks here - "Der Shamane" which is somewhat in between Drone and hypnotic Post-PostRock and "The Tabla Player" featuring a massive excess of processed drum works underneath a warm epic Ambient drone. Finally Syrinx comes up with "The Calm Before The Storm", the most Dark Ambient / Deep Listening piece on this split which reminds of the musical work of artists like Kallabris, Lunatik Sound System or Tarkatak. Recommended.
