Limited edition 2CD (300 copies) + download
To be released on ERS (ERS CD008) on October 22, 2018
Radboud Mens and Matthijs Kouw continue their long-form drone explorations from ‘1’ (released February 2017) and ‘2’ (to be released in early 2019). Using a long string and modular synthesizer, they immerse the listener in a complex, vibrant, and sonically rich environment.
“If you want to dive even deeper into Radboud Mens‘ drone experiments: the collaboration with Matthijs Kouw (1, from 2017) gets no less than two follow-up editions: 2 and 3/4 – the latter being a 2-CD album. Due to production complexities the release order got unintentionally mixed up: 2 is now scheduled to be released early next year, while 3/4 is already available now. Be prepared for the more extreme minimalist drones, Eliane Radigue style, with Radboud playing long magnetic strings and analog filters and Matthijs playing modulars.” ambientblog.net.
