Thomas Ankersmit / Valerio Tricoli
“Zwerm Voor Tithonus”

Berlin label Pan has recently released Forma II, a collaborative album between experimental saxophonist/electronic musician Thomas Ankersmit and avant-garde jack of all trades Valerio Tricoli. According to the label, “…the music consists of four electroacoustic pieces based largely on analogue synthesizer material and one long-form swarm-like composition for multiple overdubbed saxophones. Additional sounds range from metal foil floating on ultrasonic sound-beams to mechanical clickers recorded in the abandoned radar domes at Teufelsberg. The raw materials have been extensively processed and re-constructed using analogue tape and digital methods.”

Man, I love this stuff. The album is limited to 1000.
