- 16:9 by Stuart Sweeney
Well a quick one is due for this baby. Opening with sweeping waves of neo-classical inspired ambience it's clear that Mr Sweeney's opening release for the new Oomff imprint is going to be quality. Producing the sort of considerate & evocative drone music such as this requires more of an understanding about how your source material can affect people, rather than just marrying up a couple of fluctuating tones over some crackle 'n' hiss. Like Biosphere with his re-reading of Debussy some years ago, the title track of this album is a glorious semi-decayed piece of lovingly stretched & treated classical music that I find incredibly affecting if played in the right circumstances & mood. There's some glorious moments of near-epiphany on this CD, lots of secret passages - I'm looking forward to some proper uninterrupted immersion soon16:9 is an album that more than stands up to many of the quality contemporary labels pushing the sound art & experimental drone style mediums. Nice!!
