Hyunhye Seo - Eel [Room40 Promo]

Released via Australia's buzzing Room40 label on July 14th, 2k23 is "Eel", the second solo outing by Berlin-based Korean American composer Hyunhye Seo. Presenting a set of two works aptly named "Eel I" and "Eel II" over a total of 33 minutes playtime Hyunhye Seo's first iteration of "Eel" summons demons of Noize, tension and brittle atmospheric suspense from the marine depths of the Sargasso sea where these mysterious creatures breed whilst pairing this sonic approach with a dramatic, yet slightly off-kilter piano performance and a whirling maelstrom of sonic chaos and ever growing intensity whereas "Eel II" approaches things from a more static, slowly evolving perspective, catering a warm, comforting and droning environment touching base with both Industrial-infused Noize as well as panoramic DarkAmbient x Death Ambient of a well spatial, reverberating and partially fluttering nature, probably tapping into frequencies which have probably been floating back and forth through the known universe - and beyond - since the very beginning of time and therefore make up of our favorite track on this longplayer.
