Comment: the Serbian composer Olah Istvan`s one track issue consists of 872 seconds which is inspired by the North Pole by its coldness, beatific radiance, and clear heaven atop those massive icebergs and polar bears. Undoubtedly it is something which stays beyond borders of our every day life. It is a totally disparate world. By starting listening to it I was not aware of his influences for this issue. Instead it aroused me to think of it as a situation of remote future which is imbued with mechanical insects, enthralling rhythmic ticking, and abstract chirping. One could experience strange warmness oozing out of those hypnotic layers and glitched-out noises. One might have experienced similar sensations with Tim Hecker`s early recordings like Radio Amor, and Haunt Me, Haunt Me, Do It Again. You could hear the ambience around you to breath and swell while adding new knacks to the blend. Coming in and then flutter around your ear. It is a hyper-realist glimpse you are get caught in. Fairly astonishing effort for sure. The issue was a part of the discography of the Russian-based Lomeanor which had been active from 2008 to 2010.
