It's an international sound art love-in here - Swedish sound artist BJ Nilssen and Icelandic experimental electronics types Stillupsteypa are regular collaborators already, with Argentinian collaboration-oholic and Reynols founder Anla Courtis rounding out the line-up. As far as I can gather from the somewhat cryptic press release (presented as a tour diary) the three toured together and decided they must make a travel-themed album together. As far as I can tell they recorded some of the source material for this album on that tour, before piecing together these two side-long tracks at home afterwards.

The resulting album makes for hazy and hallucinatory listening, drifting along in a fug of manipulated field recordings, distant ghostly voices, smoky drones and twitching, creaking static and gurgling electronics, sometimes building up to a nightmarish crescendo of backwards screams and inside-out whooshes and tinkling windchimes. Despite the amount of cooks involved, everyone's pulling in the same direction and it doesn't sound overcluttered even when there's a dizzying variety of sounds all flying at you at once. I'm particularly liking the strange chitter'n'rumble section about a third of the way into the second side. As my grandpa would say, "What's this bloody racket? This isn't music!"
