In this composition, EMERGE combines his hallmark metallic and aquatic sounds with drone textures that are unusually close to the original sounds of his source material – in this case, two electric bass guitars played with effects pedals by Attenuation Circuit recording artists Deep. The result sounds less like musique concrete than most other EMERGE releases, but has a rather harmonic, yet doom-like quality.

Despite the droning textures that hold the piece together, the composition sounds not at all blurred, but remarkably transparent, with each layer of sounds clearly differentiated from one another. From seismic subsonic bass tremors to rhythmic loops that at times almost suggest (or mock?) a danceable beat, however briefly, this recording is probably EMERGE’s most accessible to date, even for listeners more familiar with rock or metal formats than experimental sound art. Thus, this very varied 17-minute composition makes a good introduction to the work of the prolific artist.
