The latest release by Kalte (featuring Deane Hughes of Akumu and rik maclean of mara's torment) is now available for free download from the Dark Winter net label. "Glaciations" can be downloaded at http://www.darkwinter.com/dw056.html
Inspired by the isolation and emptiness inherent in the Polar Night, "Glaciations" is a series of five sound environments made up of cold elements and deep darkness. Drawing from a range of organic sound sources which have been altered and reassembled, "Glaciations" immerses the listener in a space that evokes the feeling of solitude and glacial winds, where dark tones drift through the soundscape, shifting in subtle ways.
With their work in zero-bpm, music concréte and deep ambient, Deane Hughes and Rik MacLean produce eerie and expansive soundscapes by combining natural and electronic elements. "Glaciations" is the duo's latest release, building and expanding on ideas explored on their debut, “The Lanthanide Series” (Stasisfield, 2008). Hughes and MacLean are currently working on their debut full-length CD.
