Steve Roden "Airforms" CD
« on: November 23, 2008, 11:04:54 PM »
"Airforms" is a very good disc of ambient minimalism which reminds me of Eno's sound installation recordings.  Anyone familiar with this artist? He appears to be more of a "sound artist" than "ambient musician", and judging from his website and a couple interviews online the "art" he does is (to me anyways) pretentious modern art, in that the methods and/or explanations of how the art was created seem to be more important than the end result.  On "Airforms" low-end electronic drones are mixed with processed breathing sounds.  It was created for an art installation in which concrete is poured over balloons.  Anyways, photos from the installation make for a very esoteric cover art for this Line/12k album, which was limited to 600 copies.  Bottom line: I like this sound art release, but I don't foresee filling up my music collection with too much more of it.  :-)
