This is a trance/ambient compilation disc featuring some of the true
masters in the field. Vidna Obmana brings his trademark big, hollow,
empty desert-about-to-get-flooded-by-a-rainstorm sound to this (I
can't ever play Obmana at my parents' house because their dog starts
seriously freaking out), while Oblivion Ensemble presents more of the
caustic, dissonant mess of reverb and weird samples that they're
famous for. Oblivion Ensemble is the band most likely to compose a
fitting soundtrack for the end of the world.
Other participants in this project are Robert Rich, Ashley, and Mark
Kirschenmann, to name but a few, (there are 20 artists in all on the
disc, each contributing one track). If you want to get a good feel of
what's going on in the world of experimental/ambient music right now,
this is a good place to start.
