Acre Recordings take away the sometime fierce, always precise and so far in their catalogue damn fine beat work to deliver something on a beatless, drone approach; but importantly, another compulsive release from the Scottish imprint.
Under a new guise for Ed Devane, an Irish producer who pushes his sound and his audience into new areas of listenership; Withering Zithering is the result of his noise influenced drone experimentation with the zither instrument.
Not content with performing and recording his work with the stringed zither, he construct his own bespoke instruments, further enforcing his experimental approach to sound production and design.
Rightfully described as stunning ambience by Acre; Shattered Sense of Calm is both fittingly titled and a sublime listen that rewards those who take the time to delve into its landscape.
Great stuff from a label and artist both regarded by us at Darkfloor as essential listening. - DVNT [Darkfloor]
