This is one of those CDs that you put on your player and then think "Is this CD actually playing?...And where's that weird noise coming from?", opening as it does with the muffled rumble of distant thunder, but before too long Lopez's serene drones start to materialise in the soundfield like abandoned panpipes playing themselves in the wind.

This is the 290th numbered piece from prolific sound artist Francisco Lopez and all five tracks here are created entirely from mutated sound material recorded in Rotterdam in 2011, having been commissioned for the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2012. It's quite a meditative and peaceful listen, but the sound sources themselves can be a bit of a guessing game, having evolved from their original form into soft industrial drones and weird boinks and dinks and rumbles. They're morphed into immersive, otherworldly atmospheres with an interesting mixture of menace and softness.

Fans of ambient sound designers like Machinefabriek will enjoy this.
