Time Frost

A 5 track ambient ep (59m 3s) — released April 27th 2009 on Glacial Movements
One of the predicted swings in the weather due to global warming is paradoxically a new ice age which could envelope Europe. Time Frost is music based upon this concept and uses tiny fragments of music from an iconic European composition, Johann Strauss's Blue Danube. Robin Storey said of his music 'I imagined that tiny pieces of former cultures survived locked in the ice and waiting for future archaeologists to discover and interpret them. I used vinyl lock grooves of the Blue Danube (from the 1968 MGM recording for the film soundtrack 2001) to form the starting points for the five compositions in Time Frost which were then manipulated and added to and re-arranged into new compositions. Time Frost is an imaginary recording of the mutational process of sound locked into ice and transformed over millenia. Like ghosts of music trapped in an evershifting permafrost.

An highwater mark in the Rapoon oeuvre, and one of Storey’s best recent recordings. - Darren B. Signal To Noise

highly highly recommened, and if theres any justice, this will be on a few end of year 'best of' lists next year. - Rough Trade Shop Rough Trade Shop
