Certainly harsh noise, but almost meditative and strangely soothing by virtue of its even, slow pulse. Just like babies sometimes fall asleep when the vacuum cleaner or washing machine is switched on, the forced stasis of this sound can actually help drown out everything beyond its wall of noise, which has something very relaxing about it. The effect of this tape was not actually tested on babies, though.

Exedo uses samples snatched from other projects on attenuation circuit as source materials for his noise treatment. Bringing out the noisy rather than the musical side of the recordings, the audio “waste” that is virtually present in every recording, Exedo makes a statement about the fact that every medium has a limit, an outside. This is not at all about pessimism and entropy, because Exedo uses this self-created waste to create new works from it, works with a fierce beauty for those whose ears are attuned to noise art. The companion release “Waul” shows that this way of “upcycling” very similar material can in fact yield pretty different results even as noise.

AMBIENT NOISE WALL:
Is a kind of paradox that Sascha Stadlmeier has as a main project EMERGE (an interesting project focalized more on experimental and electronic music), but he has also some b-side projects like for example EXEDO, which I think comes to overshadow other musical projects. This is just a subjective opinion, of course, many people might prefer EMERGE, to have a more electronic sound and even a little rhythm. But EXEDO this artist's talent is very clear when it comes to create layers of sound and noise, and gradually juxtaposing one above the other. Everything happens very slowly and almost imperceptibly, like a storm of rain, which gradually grows until it reaches its maximum. And then it also disappears gradually until it opens the clear and the sun rises. Perhaps the first track is a little bit agressive and fast, just a bit, but the general atmosphere in the whole album is great and this is a good addition to the collection of those of us in to the projects from the ambient / noise style.
