Nils Quak is a sound artist, writer & journalist living in Cologne, Germany. Under his own name as well as under various other monikers he releases music on labels such as Progressive Form, Kitty Yo, Distance Recordings, Audiobulb, Clothbound Recordings and many more.‘Aether’ is the second of two wonderfully dusty sounding albums by Nils for NKR. The first, ‘Long Forgotten Days Under A Dust Covered Sky’, was released in June 2012. Thank you.
This album is far beyond music, as it is almost only made from field recordings picked up in Montreal.
Distant cruising cars, murmur of an ubiquitous crowd, humming subways, sound of children or various static noises, Tim Westcott processed and mixed these sounds to create a parallel living universe from real sounds. A hidden world behind our primary vision, made aerial and imperceptible thanks to the reverberation of the sound.
A release hard to tame, but definitely rewarding in the end. Dotflac
The two sides to producer Steve White’s music—futurism and soulfulness—sit more comfortably together than ever before on his latest album as Steve Spacek, which balances boundary-testing sonics with earnest, heart-on-sleeve lyrics. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 11, 2018
