Boomkat Product Review:
Apparently, this release marks Canadian electronic composer David Kristian making his final foray into ordinary studio albums. After this release Kristian intends to focus exclusively on soundtrack work for feature films and documentaries. Ghost Storeys seems like the ideal transitional album for Kristian then, as it finds him collaborating with the Japanese Manga animator, Ryosuke Aoike on a series of short, abstract vignettes themed around urban isolation and paranoia. The DVD clocks in at around twenty-five minutes and is assembled from a mixture of Flash animation and digital video rendering images of empty corridors, abandoned buildings and phantom-like figures. Aoike does a marvellous job of creating a sense of suspense and foreboding without ever resorting to outright horror. Kristian's soundtrack, when listened to in separation from the accompanying images takes on a similar feel to the pitch black ambience of Lustmord or even the greyed-out micro drone of Francisco Lopez or The Hafler Trio. There's a lot more material on the audio disc than the films themselves would suggest - there's well over an hour's worth of music to take in. Ghost Storeys is an excellent package all round, a supremely well-realised project that will thoroughly creep you out in the most enjoyable fashion.
