Ultra-minimal ambience approaching the limits of silence.
"The sounds on this record, originally recorded between 1993 and 1995, were intended for use as "environmental sound for exhibition space". These pieces are remarkable for how their subtle and dense soundscaping continuously moves in and out of a foundation in silence. These five segments create an amorphous whole where silence is not only used as marks of punctuation, but fulfils its double role as both the source and the destination of sound. Highly recommended."

Classic re-issue of the only "dark-ambient" Crawl Unit
record, if there is such a thing. Joe might kill me for
saying that but this demo gave me the blissful creeps for
a year before I finally called Joe Colley and said we have
to make a record of this. This is a sonorous, billowing
cloud of sound, expanding, deepening, wavering,
occasionally throbbing the speakers with titanic
world-heavy bumps and textures. The untitled tracks here
seem to corrode and meld into each othr like tectonic
plates, slowly crushing into the edges, burrowing and
rumbling. All over this a dire wind stretches. Ground
metaphors don't do it justice because this feels so
effervescent and airy. Light, yet totally black. In
