Dr. NoiseM - Studio Works 26 [Dr. NoiseM Tapes]

Coming straight from the studios of Meppen's mysterious Dr. NoiseM is "Studio Works 26", the latest album effort of the highly productive Noize and DeathAmbient artist which is catering a new selection of nine previously unreleased tunes on this one. Starting into the album with the 26 seconds Digital HarshNoize / Breakcore eruption that is "Black Hawk" things progress with "Clip", a desolate Cold Ambient piece bringing on desparate, yet beautiful string drones alongside the Dr.'s trademark respiratory sounds whereas "Dead In Space" follows a way more minimalistic path, exclusively consisting of spatial recordings of static atmospheres alongside highly fragile echoes of strings whilst the "Emergency Setup" is built upon a foundation of a lonely alien two-tone signal, sci-fi laboratory recordings and an overall feel of a postapocalyptic wasteland. Progressing into "High Resolution" we're presented a solemn fusion of Cold Ambient and Deep Listening Music, "Jolly Rancher" serves approx. two minutes of spaced out, filtered Digital Noize and "Monster" caters 4+ minutes of pure silence. The albums main piece "Planet Gong" which is spread out over a total runtime of 31 - sic! - minutes weighs in a continuous flow of wobbly, slightly off-kilter Ambient modulations reminiscent of  Dr. NoiseM's 'The CDr A-B-C'-series before the final "Planetensolimuster" waves goodbye with a calm, isolationist take on brooding Dark Ambient. Proper good!
