Asher Tuil - Opus [Room 40 Promo]

Released via the long-standing Australian Room40 label on April 19th, 2k24 is "Opus", the new, almost 76 minutes spanning long form album conceived by Wanskuck, Rhode Island-based producer x composer Asher Thal-Nir under his moniker Asher Thuil. Based upon previous loop research "Opus" is basically comprised of layered and looped elements including a set of urban Field Recordings, all falling together in a spatial, almost enchanted way with brittle hovering synth atmospherics floating in time and space, in parts only backed by tectonic low end movements at the outer fringes of the audible spectrum, in parts accompanied by rhythmic sequences probably generated from the hypnotic sound of rattling train tracks recorded from a distance on the occasion of extended neighbourhood walks whereas other sweeps and swooshes seem to be reminiscent of the, albeit reprocessed, sound of fast cars passing by in closer proximity, leading into scenic SynthAmbient x (Neo)Cosmic sequences as well as raw UnAmbient pulses resembling early attempts and experiments in electronic music production, spaceous iterations of widescreen SpaceAmbient featuring clicks and pulses alongside slightly warped off-harmonics, swampy modulations and further sonic goodness which make "Opus" a well interesting journey for the Ambient-informed listener, yet still seem like a collection of single tracks rather than a fully fledged, fully consistent one track album or an opus magnum of sorts which Asher Tuil probably was aiming at with this one.
