Closing the Eternity
« on: September 21, 2013, 09:48:24 AM »
I don't know much about this Russian artist, but my growing collection of his work is really impressing me.  I just got "Nearby Being" with Ad Lux Tenebrae.   Their previous release Skywards the Infinity will cost around $65 if I order it.  Is this worth it?  I cannot find any sound samples.  The label is Infinite Fog Productions, the 2cd was limited to under 100 copies...

Released by subscription. Shortly: if million people did pre-oder - million copies would be pressed. If only one - only one copy.
Limited edition of 89. Full-coloured hand-numbered hardcover A5-digibook.

No synthesizers were used on these recordings.

90 minutes of sound, development of ideas from "Nearby Being" album. More manifold and diverse soundings… floating ambiences in vein of ALIO DIE + tribal shamanic recordings.

Cool man, thanks!!!  I do like ambient w/o synths.  This one obviously has lots of electronic processing.  Very cool stuff... :)

Please pay attention that sound samples have  low-fi quality. CDs sound wonderfully and there are a lot of high frequencies.

"LeX: hogweed aerophone..."

Sounds like an early Genesis fan!
