Amarok

A 1 track ambient album (1h 2m 38s) — released March 15th 2010 on Glacial Movements
Francisco Lopez is known all over the world as a legend of experimental music. He has performed in hundreds live shows, projects and sound-sets in over 60 countries across 5 continents and his huge discography has been released by more than 200 labels. His musical universe moves from human-ear limits to the deepest abysses of sonorous power and it is mostly composed of field recordings from the wildest areas of Earth and the depths of the industrial world. For "Amarok" two years of hard work have been employed using sounds and processed field recordings. It's an unequalled conceptual soundscape in this artists huge discography and it perfectly represents Glacial Movements aesthetics. After a few seconds from the track beginning we dip into an arctic trip which lasts more than an hour and in which tangled weavings in a masterly fashion handled by the Spanish artist appear, develop and dissolve. Gusts of arctic wind, the Amarok's wheezing breath (Amarok is the name of a gigantic wolf in Inuit mythology) and the sense of loss in the polar night are only some of the sensations that this cryogenic hallucinatory acoustic is able to evoke. "Amarok is probably one of the more isolationist and spookiest work I've ever done" Francisco Lopez

The storm of sounds disperses abruptly before descending back into an icy oblivion where it meanders around for a while longer. - Justin Patrick BRAINWASHED

Amarok is one of López's most significant works to date. - Calbe Deupree CLASSICAL DRONE

For those yet to discover Francisco Lopez's vast discography, Amarok represents a brilliant way in.Highly recommended. - BOOMKAT
