Boomkat Product Review:
Finally back in stock!! With a heritage in minimal music that extends all the way back to his pioneering work as one half of Porter Ricks, Thomas Koner is one of the most respected and influential modernist minimal composers. Alongside Wolfgang Voigt’s “Gas” project, Koner has been centrally responsible for electronic music’s fascination with depth and reduction, enveloping washes of nothingness with all the density of an unbearably foggy plain. This release sees Koner, for the first time, exploring these reductive techniques in both audible and visual formats – the DVD accompanying this album showing slowly mutating still life shots from Greenland, slowly transforming from the glow of nightime lights into vast expanses of pure snow. Needless to say, followers of Mille Plateaux, as well as the heritage of Basic Channel / Chain Reaction and the more recent death ambience of Sunn o)) will find this an absolute must. Deep!
