Machinefabriek - The Breathing Bridge
One of the most interesting of Machinefabriek's recent mini-cdr self-released set, this one relies on the natural evolved response of the human mind to the sound of close roaring waters, a pure core shock to the limbic system, the inner reptile brain. Heavy dynamics and an inner inspection of the tonalities of water itself - the sound of water, even rapids, truly is not just "white noise," it is a particular set of chaotic shimmering crystal tones. As usual, Machinefabriek is great at creating actual music with truly experimental investigations in field recording.
