released April 21, 2014

After the experiments with voices on “Un_B°tong,” the dark ambient composer goes completely vocal on this album (his fourth release on Attenuation Circuit) with his soundscapes providing an atmospheric soundtrack to the prose recited by Swiss writer BoUm. The contrast between the matter-of-fact, evenly paced vocal delivery of the texts and the subtle unease created by the music makes for a suspenseful journey even for listeners unfamiliar with the German language, in which the texts are written.

Less bass-heavy and reverbed than previous releases by the artist, getting maximum effect out of small sounds, B°tong’s music on this disc is rather subdued, always aiming to provide a sparse but emotionally engaging vehicle for the images created in the mind of the listener by the speaking voice. As the title “Augenaufschlag” (“blink of an eye”) suggests, BoUm takes his audience through a non-linear series of somewhat surreal scenes and landscapes. Echoes of nightmares, Kafka’s “In the Penal Colony,” and HR Giger paintings combine in strange yet fascinating tableaux.
