Trondheim Voices & Asle Karstad - Rooms & Rituals [Grappa Musikkforlag]

To be released via the Norwegian Grappa Musikkforlag on August 24, 2k18 is "Rooms & Rituals", a collaborational effort created by the female choir project known as Trondheim Voices in conjunction with sound designer Asle Karstad. Based on an array of unique, voice-controlling and -altering instruments named maccatrols in combination with electronic live processing the project presents a selection of twelve takes taken from several of the groups unique and oftentimes location specific live performances which, according to the sound presented on this album, is deep, Ambient-related, filled with mystique and mystery, borrowing aspects from hypermodern theatre and abstract opera, bringing on multilayered non-vocalisms, slow Electronica pulses, modular twists and other unusual proceedings which all fall into place to create an album like, taking and flipping a phrase from the press promo sheet "... no album you ever heard". Also interesting for Dark Ambient lovers and score-heads for a reason.
