Alex Mason – [2020] Dark

Rich field recording soundscapes combined with creepily dark ambient drones.

Content warning: this album could be the soundtrack to a yet to be released dark pyscho thriller playing in the woods Norway or Canada. Suspense, excellent use of string instruments from bass to violin make this an experience to behold. Best served with headphones late at night. Shivers guaranteed! And the obligatory reminder: if you like what they give away for free, consider supporting the artist financially (e.g. via Bandcamp).

4. Alex Mason – The Escape

Horns and strings for tension. A little bit of synth and subtle beats create a subtle scifi atmosphere. There’s so much going on in just 2 minutes.

7. Alex Mason – Ritual

Tense strings, rising in volume, horror cliché but effective. Cinematic score influences are strong in this one (cough, Dark Knight anyone?).
