Lissom - Nest of Iterations

Lissom - Nest of IterationsAmerican label Dragon's Eye Recordings was founded by Paul Novak in remote 1989. At the moment it exists thanks to the power of its creator's son Yann Novak. Label's production can surely be interesting for the fans of minimalistic audio design and ambient – these are the works of sound designers/artists with limited number of edition copies, well, in general, they are made by people who, as a rule, aren't usually called 'musicians'. They create images, draw with the help of sound, decorate the space...

Nest of Iterations is the debut album of audio/video performer Lissom (Tana Sprague). Ambient textures, created by her in the first tracks of the album were received from different sources and were processed by electronic devices. These textures stream along the walls as dense, thick current so as if they were liquid. Delicate mixture of deep droning and noisy rustlings layers in such tracks as "Fallow" or "Forage" lie down in the space as heavy load. And it feels as if they were hampering breathing. Moreover, the second part of the album, for example, tracks "Billow" and "Stark" opens for the listener wide night horizon, gives him more air and the feeling of flight. These tracks reminded me of the Hecq - Night Falls released by label Hymen records previous year. In Nest of Iterations live component successfully becomes intertwined with synthetic fibres forming immersing and elegant drone ambient. It must be said, it doesn't amaze at all, but still is pleasant in every way.
