Wow. It is impressive what calm synthetic carpets of ambient sounds can achieve. An emotionally dense experience awaits you. Just open your ears and listen to this impressive album by a talented young electronic artist. The album’s tagline “Toward a new electronic romanticism” nails it. While being very calm and ambient, the music is far from boring.
Cantelopps has become a real hit in the free music scene when it was published on the compilation Mercedes-Benz Mixed Tape 01 in the year 2004. This is when I learnt about Khonnor and searched for more from him. The track is easily described: soft string notes on a loop, above a clicky beat with synth-pads filling up the gap. The combination is breath-taking.
Rooms consists of only a single strings riff looped for over four minutes. That plus some subtle clicks, cracks and samples are enough to create surprisingly much atmosphere.
