Astronomy. A strange name for an innovative project. At the
border between harsh noise and experimentalism, James Huggett uses
various sound sources, loops and distortion to create deep and complex
tracks of ear blasting, cinematic noise.
"Lunik" is the first full-length album
Astronomy to be released. Combat
Astronomy was however half of the very first CD ever released
on the american cult label Troniks
(a successful split with Sleeping
with the Earth), which has brought a lot of attention to this
"Lunik" is what you would hear if you were
sitting on the moon, in an astronaut suit, and listening to some
strange modern tribal music through broken headphones. Loops and
beats supported by relentless waves of noise. This album is crafted
like a spiral, progressing to its core before coming back to the
edges of the begnning. Abrasive but deep, complex and solid, "Lunik"
is a very well thought out album, that will appeal to fans of both
noise and innovative industrial music.
This album is, packaged in an oversized DVD box.
The first run of this disc is a limited edition of 100 handnumbered
