Draemgate: Twilight There is no music happening here – none whatsoever! If, however you are a sounds-junkie, noise lover, dark ambient fanatic, or into avant-garde experimental “music” then look no further. Draemgate offers a woefully dreary and dank walk into the catacombs of frozen worlds on the edge of sanity. What does a crop circle sound like? Do the deep places of space have voices, sing of mysteries? And what of occultic symbols and enigmatic patterns we find – have they something to say? Can anyone really translate visual information into the selfsame echo of its true auditory signal? Yes or no?

I quote Draemgate,

“The image-to-sound conversion process (invented by Matthew E. Kieren) . . . uses an image to create a unique sound. It does this by using mathematical algorithms to convert each individual pixel into frequency modulation. However, what really matters is the end result . . . Over a hundred images were used of crop circles, deep space nebulae, and other various designs and natural formations.”

Is this enjoyable? All sci-fi/fantasy/horror soundtrack fans need this and you doomers and ultra-goth goons should dig this scene. I found it a very interesting listen and I kept wondering what image created what piece. This is not for someone sitting alone at home on a stormy night with a fearful mindset. Fear and dread fill this CD and a foreboding essence weighs heavily throughout. Ooh fun!

Warning: Do not crank your speakers too loud as the dynamics of this recording might out your cheaper brands.
