Coming from the deep studio vaults of Dr. NoiseM is the "J" part of the ongoing, 26-months longs 'The CDr A-B-C'-series which provides another nearly 80 minutes ride into experimental electronic music. Starting off on a Dark / Death Ambient vibe introduced by a slow and haunting resemblance of ghostly choirs moving back and forth like the tides leading into short bits of screeching distortion when reaching the sonic waves peak the audio events seem to slowly relocate into the faraway distance or an abandoned tunnel after minute ten or so which even emphasizes the impression of being surrounded by lost souls. Throughout the further course of the album the tonal qualities of the steady ebb and flow become colder and more alienating, gravitating towards eternal exo-planetary darkness whilst - as in most episodes of the album series - we see the come back of a more respiratory aesthetic in sound that forms a seamless connection to its prede- and presumably also to its successors to come as this seems to be a staple in Dr. NoiseM's contemporary production palette. Later on this breathing flow is accompanied by fluttering low-end distortions and icy background drones blown over from afar before the longplay piece comes to an end in a final distorted uproar. Defo a well fitting sequel piece in the 'The CDr A-B-C'-series that incorporates both new and well familiar elements and therefore is defo one to check out for sure.
