Kassel Jaeger - ee[nd] [Mystery Sea - 2008]

Ambient music is often darkly hued or lushly soothing but ee[nd] is  more often playful, brightly lined, dense and noisy yet itís still wholly ambient. ee[nd] is more of a richly detailed painting than abstract artwork made from blocks of colour.

Kassel Jaeger is not a real name but Suda- name of a French sound engineer largely involved in the GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) and ee[nd] presents 43 minutes and five tracks of Sonics. The tracks are built around dense collages of shifting nature based field records, be it: water, birds, wind etc, along with static and shifting textured noise elements. And  running here and there through the dense mix of sounds and textures are these bright almost world music/ or child like harmonic shapes that often give the  feel like your swimming in some bizarre and bright colour- running otherworld. I donít know if ee[nd] is very particularly soothing or meditative yet its rewarding in itís detailed and shifting often bright sonic world.

One for those who enjoy their ambient quite active,  surreal and dense. ee[nd] manages to create a selection of distinct vibrate yet at times murky and psychedelic soundworlds that are very rewarding and seemingly changing/ shifting on repeated plays
