US synth-o-naut Naucke supplies Longform Editions a chilly sliver of kosmiche promise
With stripes earned for some of the best underground synth academies - Arbor, Spectrum Spools, Hausu Mountain, not to mention his Catholic Tapes label - Brett Naucke envisions the sound of a ‘Arctic Watch,’ mixing a sort of noirish spy film intrigue with sci-fi thriller esque tension and new age wonder for Preservation’s prolific digital series.
Around a core of glowing organ cadence, crystalline ice formations accumulate and tessellate, and a backdrop of dancing aurora borealis light shows play out beyond the confines of your research cabin, evoking a sense of being stranded thousands of miles from humanity and given to polar ghosts and experimental cold war creatures. Fans of classics from Tangerine Dream to Popol Vuh and Jean Michel Jarre need check.
