Landscapes and signs, drained of all colour and grisly as if from a film exposed to toxic substances – the cover photos of this release by German sound and video artist Der 2te Freund gives a good impression of the post-apocalyptic, “Stalker”-esque feel of the music.

Atonal electronic sheets of sleet drench the atmosphere, and every now and then noises of vaguely mechanical origin make themselves heard. Possibly all sounds heard here were once field recordings, but what we hear is their final state after a long process of entropy. For ambient sounds to become art, it is necessary for them to be denaturalised. And of course this is what makes them interesting, thanks to the very reductionist method at work here. The result bears a certain resemblance to some of Asmus Tietchens’s works.
