Soundscape lovers - AGN / Hibernate collaboration CD

Peter Van Cooten Wrote:The Audio Gourmet netlabel, run by Harry Towell - a.k.a. Spheruleus- quickly became one of the major netlabels on the ambient music scene. At time of writing, their impressive catalogue presents about 30 releases, most of them E.P.'s, around 15 minutes long, and thus created to fit your daily coffee/tea break perfectly.

As a disclaimer, I didn't make anything for this particular release.

Audio Gourmet Wrote:There are 200 limited edition CD copies of Hidden Landscapes available for purchase thanks to Jonathan of Hibernate Records. He has kindly offered to design and print this stunning album as a physical copy. He's also provided the front cover photography through his Cragg Vale Photography project.

The digital counterpart is available through the Audio Gourmet Bandcamp account, with proceeds going towards keeping the netlabel section up and running. This has become necessary with Bandcamp now charging account holders to distribute music for free. Since we wish to continue using the site for its aesthetics and ease of use, these compilations will become a frequent feature here on Audio Gourmet.

The album has been carefully mastered by Byron from the Felt Collective.

Harry Towell Wrote:The compilation features 12 tracks from some of the globe's most talented sound-designers. It is a subtly rewarding headphone listen from start to finish; curated and ordered to purposefully induce a state of sleep. Starting off minimally, gradually gathering tone and atmosphere, the experience goes on without ever boiling over or reaching a crescendo. Parts of the album are light and restful whereas traces of it tread darker territory. All in all, the imagery that the album conjurs sits perfectly as a soundtrack to the dreams one experiences during a nights sleep.

The artwork was put together by French artist Eric Lacombe (Monstror) who some may remember for his cover art collaborations for Spheruleus releases in the past. Here for 'In The Bleak Wilderness Of Sleep', his surreal imagery lends itself perfectly to this mysterious dream invoking soundtrack.

The limited edition CDr release comes housed inside a recycled card case with the cover artwork slipped inside and printed to photographic paper. Along with a CDr copy of the album itself, the tracklist will be printed to high quality salmon coloured paper/card. On the front, the album title will be rubber stamped in brown ink and on the back, the Audio Gourmet logo will be cut out by lazers. It will be hand-numbered in brown pen and limited to 200 copies.

Ordered 3 copies this evening. Smile

Something else you may want to check once released, mighty fine lineup of artists involved and all for a good cause.

Looks spellbinding DIB, I'll definitely be supporting. Met Clem and David Library Tapes when they played St. Michael's Church with Hauschka last year. Good guys, and I'm sure the music matches the message.

double cd available to pre order now and also available as a digital download

Ordered both the CD and digital. Twothumbs
