- Nunatak by Thomas Koner
Now I don't know shit about this guy, my landlord rang me up to ask if I knew where he could get a copy from, so I read up a bit about this release and was fully intrigued to the max. This is the first in a triptych of seminal "dark ambient" albums, this particular title originally on CD only from 1992. His usage & endorsement of gongs and wind instruments helps creates an ominous booming atmosphere, an incredibly malevolent, portentous sound that conjures up thoughts of traipsing across a lonely Arctic Tundra, at dusk, knowing you could be ripped apart by a starving wooly rabid mammoth style creature at any given moment. So it works more like a powerful mood soundtrack, taking you into the perilous icy vortices & chasms of your mind whilst concurrently providing you with a strange form of comfort & relief. The frequencies you get on this vinyl pressing are quite unnerving, especially in amongst the quieter, sparse passages, reminding us of some deep electronic whale music - this record totally breathes life man! i'm taking 'Nunatak' home tonight to test in my own more peaceful surroundings because the click, clunk, rattle, scrunch & clatter of this office is not the sensory embellishment I want right now.....
