Recently released via his very own imprint Dr. NoiseM Tapes is the very first part of Dr. NoiseM's new, ongoing series "The CDr A-B-C" which , as plans have it, will have one single CDr album dedicated to each letter of the alphabet. Released on a monthly basis for 26 months in a row each subsequent CDr album will be limited to 26 hand-numbered pieces only - a large-scale musical project dedicated to all lovers of collectibles. With the letter "A" Dr. NoiseM leads us into the land of haunting static Noize and stone-cold Death Ambient, where befouled winds blow and deep, organic bass drones start to unfold past minute 11 of 64+ in this one track album. Making further progress the slowly evolving, funereal low-frequencies seem to pay homage to projects like Kallabris which are well-known and appreciated for their deep musical melancholia, providing a warm and versant subtext to the still present, slightly changing static, later on accompanied by high-pitched, alienating strings which fully prove that there's lots of versatility and dark beauty to be found in Dark- and Death Ambient for a reason. A masterly crafted piece for sure.
