The venerable noiseambient composers PBK and C. Reider present
their first collaborative full length record.
FROM LINER NOTES: "Over the last ten years PBK had
occasionally sent source material to C. Reider for collaboration,
however, the collaboration never came together. Suddenly, earlier
this year PBK was surprised to find a parcel in the mail from C.
Reider with the finished master inside. He played it and found the
mixes to be a new kind of 21st century psychedelic drone space music."
Released on Poland's Impulsy Stetoskopu. Import limited
edition of 120 in a slimline DVD case with full color artwork, not
Very few copies remain!

Review by Goat's Den:
Ten years (off and on) in the making, this 7-track, 46-minute
collaboration between drone composer C. Reider and abstractionist PBK
is a curious and immersive set of noisy, textured, alien soundscapes,
with a very proto-industrial feel. Beginning with the befuddling,
loopily surreal opener (we’ll call it ‘Track 1′), the album gels
into a far-out set of abstracted sounds, textures, and sound
collages. Track 4 is a densely-collaged mass of squelch and what
sounds like manipulated and layered field recordings. Track 5 is more
woozy, like waking up from a horrible anesthesia experience with your
head spinning and throbbing. Track 7 wakes from the dream to a
lilting, ambient journey at the beach, complete with what seems like
distant waves and seagulls (or was I imagining that? Didn’t hear it
the second time through). It’s a fitting conclusion to an otherwise
disorienting journey, and a marvelous one, at that.
