This is weird! That's the word I'd use to describe this.
This 3CD project is a very sparse, bleak, weird, experimental, abstract and very very long ambient journey. It's definitely not easily accessible, there is very little in the way of melody, rhythm or structure in this. In fact there is very little in the way of our usual music defining elements. All there is, is deep, dark, bleak minimal soundscapes.

Very hard to describe each track so I'll just run through a few of the highlights.

CD1
Gianfranco Grilli - Organic Transformation which is one of the very few that even hints at melody, it is a sad deep melody. Hypersleep - Dandelion Dreams which is a very interesting glitch ambient track that is nicely followed by Seetcya's Outro a nice oceany atmosphere to end on. Seetcya does an intro & outro to each CD as well as a short interlude between each track (on all CDs)

CD2
Nethus - The Inharmonic Heater is 13.5 minutes of bleak atmospheric ambience. Shortly after Niki Neecke - Funfoodfactory gives us some nice tribal beats. Herpes ö Deluxe offers us another glitchy ambient gem with Tran. The real gem on CD2 though is I:Wound - Waiting for the new flesh which manages to have a nice eastern vibe

CD3
This is the most minimal of the CDs, in the sparse sense of the word. Best track here is Franziska Baumann's Birsay. It's weird it's wet and ends with really of the peg vocals. Lull - Just Below Wixford is either incredibly boring or really good, not sure which. NID - Tower Of Babel is really cool with a hard pounding & a dark vocal sample. Mathias Grassow /w Carsten Agthe & Siegmar Fricke - The Earth Rocks is also worth mentioning as it has a much more earthy musical feel than the rest of the project.

So a concept album about the relationships & interaction between Mankind and the Oceans. I don't think this project is going to reach many people though. It's good & I like it for sure but even I, with my vary varied abstract taste, have to be in the right mood for this album & that mood doesn't come along too often. I definitely wont be putting this on when my friends come round.

If you like, minimal, weird, experimental, abstract ambient then give this a try. If you don't like any one of those adjectives then steer clear of this one!
