oystered 34

2nd in the series, initially conceived October, 2008.

Beautiful buncha ambient jamz here, and most of ‘em kinda rare to boot. Wolfgang Voigt’s “Tal ’90 (Version)” (available only with the Raster-Noton ‘Gas’ ltd ed CD & book package) and Giuseppe Ielasi’s & Nicola Ratti’s “Untitled VII” (from their debut collaboration, ‘Bellows’ on Kning Disk) serve as the perfect bookends, also complimenting each other nicely – if ya didn’t know any better, you might think the latter track was penned by Voigt too.

In between, Stephan Mathieu’s track is culled from a 2CD compilation on Kid606’s Tigerbeat6 label, Aero is the nom de plume of none other than Koen ‘Mountains’ Holtkamp, Klimek’s track is taken from Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series, and Pimmon’s “Black Cipher” only found its way onto a Stunned label cassette. The others are from Kranky’s esteemed back catalogue.

Re-mixed and re-assembled April, 2013.
