Susanne Skog - Siberia / Sirens [Fylkingen Records]

Released on November 18th, 2k19 via Stockholm's Fylkingen Records is "Siberia / Sirens", the latest two track album piece created by Swedish sound artist Susanne Skog. Mainly based on and built around Field Recordings from her various journeys all over the world we see Susanne Skog focusing on recordings from a 9288km train trip from Moscow to Vladivostok in September 2015 with the first piece "Siberia" which is a hypnotic, time defying variation of ultraminimalist Ambient textures and ever droning background atmospheres perfectly capturing the isolationist bubble and disconnectedness from the outside world oftentimes associated with long distance train travels. "Sirens", the second composition on this album, uses - well... - sirens recorded in many places around the world within the time frame from 2013 to 2017 to turn them into a fragile, icy Cold Ambient drone, once again in conjunction with deep space-related Isolationist Ambient atmospheres and a slowly moving low frequency pulse to provide a certain kind of eerieness which makes this nearly 20 minutes spanning track an ideal candidate to sonically accompany an apocalyptic or dystopian sci-fi story of sorts. Recommended.
