Boomkat Product Review:
Geir Jenssen (Biosphere) wraps up both of his Fires of Ork albums with Pete Namlook in a handy dose of ambient techgnostalgia for Biophon Records.
Originally dispatched in 1993 on Namlook’s Fax label, The Fires of Ork tends to the darker side of the early ‘90s ambient paradigm, pairing samples of Rutger Hauer from Bladerunner which gave the project its name, with a mix of robust slow techno throbbers and expansive, head-engulfing beat-less black holes, including a killer trance techno night-flight in Talk To The Stars, featuring lyrics cadged from an old KLF Communications press release.
With The Fires Of Ork 2 , they emerge the other end of the preceding decade with a sparser, more spacious sound, letting a little light into their aesthetic with the shimmers of In Heaven, but pulling back into atmospheres redolent of Lynch’s Mulholland Drive score in When The Night Was Black, before peering into and dancing around an electro-acoustic abyss with Nouvelles Machines.
