Antti Tolvi - Spectral Organ / Feedback Gong [Room40 Promo]

Released via the Australian staple that is Room40 on July 8th, 2k22 is "Spectral Organ / Fededback Gong", the latest - two tracks and roughly 43 minutes spanning - album effort by Finnish composer x sound installation artist Antti Tolvi. Opening with "Spectral Organ" Tolvi presents an unaltered live recording of a piece performed in a 14th century church on the island of Kemiö which takes the micro-genre of warm and hypercomforting Minimal Drone Ambient to a new, near static level. Furthermore "Feedback Gong", originating as a piece for a sound / light installation, is following up on a similar, more low end oriented path, providing slightly more movement and agitation in terms of creating the illusion of the original sound source rapidly moving back and forth, away from and towards the actual listener and therefore creating what could be called a slightly discomforting feel of disorientation, dizzying nausea and motion sickness in parts even though the tune tends to calm down and turn into a comforting sonic cocoon over the course of its continued playtime. Deep Listening Music doesn't get any deeper than this.
