The sound of Akashic Crow’s Nest begins with the use of an image synthesizer which turns very long photographic images into audio output, in the manner of a piano roll. The initial part of composing this music is thus designing the picture. For this latest project, the first audio output is converted to MIDI and run through a different software synthesizer, before being subjected to a battery of effects to get to the sounds you hear on this album.

  1. The best ACN release in a while, and it’s something a little different from them (him?) More repetitive, less active than their previous material, it lends itself to contemplation more. It seems to be more like “The Serpent’s thumb” on “Hawk of a n uncanny Nest.”
    Good none the less, you will enjoy it. Boing!
