Draemgate (Interdimensional Industries)
By John W. Patterson
There is no music happening here – none whatsoever! If, however you are a
sounds-junkie, noise lover, dark ambient fanatic, or into avant garde
experimental “music” then look no further. Draemgate offers a woefully
dreary and dank walk into the catacombs of frozen worlds on the edge of
sanity. What does a crop circle sound like? Do the deep places of space
have voices, sing of mysteries? And what of occultic symbols and enigmatic
patterns we find – have they something to say? Can anyone really translate
visual information into the selfsame echo of its true auditory signal? Yes
I quote Draemgate,
“The image-to-sound conversion process (invented by Matthew E.
Kieren) . . . uses an image to create a unique sound. It does this
by using mathematical algorithms to convert each individual pixel into
frequency modulation. However, what really matters is the end result . . .
Over a hundred images were used of crop circles, deep space nebulae, and
other various designs and natural formations.”
Is this enjoyable? All sci-fi/fantasy/horror soundtrack fans need this and
you doomers and ultra-goth goons should dig this scene. I found it a very
interesting listen and I kept wondering what image created what piece.
This is not for someone sitting alone at home on a stormy night with a
fearful mindset. Fear and dread fill this CD and a foreboding essence
weighs heavily throughout. Ooh fun!
Warning: Do not crank your speakers too loud as the dynamics of this
recording might out your cheaper brands.
Track Listing: Seven truly disturbing, dark, and extremely unusual
experiences in sound await to engulf you.
Personnel: Matthew Everet Kieren and Robert Shawn Kieren - the whole
