Here’s one that should interest a lot of you sound art buffs out there. It’s LINE boss Richard Chartier’s second collaboration with glamorous tape loop giant Billy Basinski - a single track of ebbing and flowing audio which goes on for almost 45 minutes. It’s a shimmering, slightly mechanised-sounding symphony of gentle hisses and rumbles, tiny decayed melodic details and peaceful drones, all blurred down to a smooth, soft wall of ambience where it’s very hard to distinguish which contributions have come from whom.

It’s very much a deep listening experience best enjoyed alone in a quiet place, allowing the layers of texture to wash over you and letting your mind try to unscramble them. It’s giving me the feeling of being in some kind of industrial post-apocalyptic wasteland, surrounded by silent, dusty machines with weeds sprouting from them. Obviously a pretty essential purchase for all you sound art fans.
