Nekton Falls 3-CD compilation
« on: November 22, 2008, 06:05:01 AM »
Any opinions on this compilation? There's a Mathias Grassow track on Disc 3. Other artists include Franz de Waard and Gianfranco Grilli (remember him from Amplexus?) The only review I could find (on Discogs) described it as "weird." Could be a good thing. :-)

You can hear a couple of samples here on Databloem

I have it and its indeed an odd set.
Maybe I will find the time for a renewed listen this weekend, and can give you more details.

Had an earfull. Yep, its an odd thing throughout.

Metallic underwater sounds. Sometimes cavernous and warm. Grainy, & watery drones. Hiss. Curious samples. Deep and lush, occasionally rising to intense & piercing. Underwater insects and winds blowing on a mic. Only a couple of clearly rhythmic tracks. Experimental pieces more than composed and overtly musical. Some very nice atmospheres. An odd collection for sure, and lots of it, but more or less unified by the watery detritus throughout. Certainly a fascinating listen.

Its a 3 disk digipack thing, and the cover is almost unreadable. You need a good light to decipher it. Looks cool though.

If I could edit it I'd have it down to 2 disks at most.
