Recorded in various undisclosed caves and secret locations within the French Pyrenean landscape, we are now witness to a very unique channelling of forces emanating from these two singular ritual acts. In textual studies, a “Palimpseste” is writing material, such as a parchment or tablet, used one or more times after earlier writings have been erased from it. It can also be regarded as something having usually diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface. The conductive element within these recordings is water, sound sources recorded from cave lakes, streams and rivers are featured through out these recordings, carefully merged with stark, cavernous drone soundscapes and disquieting chants, guiding us to unknown territories as we venture within these singular chambers and places. The whole transpires as an hymn to the power of water, to cleanse and purify, and even destroy all it touches.
Edition of 500 copies in A5 Matt Laminated Digisleeve. 5 Tracks. Running Time 46:51
I love doom jazz, noir, and Atrium Carceri.
The three together with Cities Last Broadcast AND God Body Disconnect is WOW.
And A Thousand Empty Rooms is, or I hope is, the soundtrack of my soul. control_001
If you haven't yet gone down the dark ambient late night bandcamp Cryo Chamber rabbit hole - you are totally missing out! This however is the one release from the label that I would consider a notch above all others, in terms of concept and execution. Pretty much flawless collaboration that sends you into an hour plus haze. Nice. bcb723
Ok, I wanted to review this album, but I'm at loss of words. The artists of Cryo Chamber had outdone themselves with this one. Rarely I feel transported outside of my reality with the music - this one did just that. It's not just a music. It's a window, it's a vessel. It's a peek into the spaces beyond. almos666
