4 years after the EP Box of Matches (in collaboration with Meklabor), Ars Sonor comes back on eg0cide with a full length album based on field recordings made near the Baltic Sea (Himmerfjärden and Baggensfjärden) in May 2012 and May 2013 respectively, lake Mälaren in June 2013, and lake Trekanten in September 2014.
Here we have 4 spacious soundscapes that grow slowly layer after layer and offer not only deep drones but also a hint of atmospheric post-rock. The flawless sound production and the emotional richness of Sjoärna make it a piece of choice for the pickiest amateurs of ambient music.
