The first excerpt is recommended, as it is encoded in stereo, and
shows the broad use of the stereo spectrum on this disc.
is both the name of the project and of a CD who gathered a lot of
attention in 2000, taking this Californian musician to the front
of the young dark ambient scene, along with Wilt.
Drones and dark atmospheres, original sounds from
strange machines, manipulated frequencies and weird structures,
for originality and experimentation, for hypnotizing drones and
deep tones. More specifically, LS-TTL
works with specific frequencies, with very carefully synthesized
sounds, and with tones he creates himself with oscillators and analog
"43 Hz (note: F1)", with his title reflecting
well how this music what this music relies on, is a 21 minutes long
track that features a lot of stereo effects, dark atmospheres and
strange, unreal sounds. Probably LS-TTL's
finest act, it works very well alone on this disc, packaged in a
thing but robust cardboard sleeve.
"43 Hz (note: F1)" is the first of Ad Noiseam's
"Darkambient series". This series is the result of the
integration of the Darkambient.net
label (created by Bauke Van Der Wal, the man behind The [law-rah]
collective) into Ad Noiseam. Bauke has decided to stop his label,
and will now and then participate to this new series on Ad Noiseam.
This 3" CDR is limited to hand-numbered 75 copies.
