In the Treeeees
Turn up the volume on this one. These are some serious drones from a most desolate place. Iron Skeletons lets us hear what the bones of abandoned buildings hear, and it's haunting.
Favorite track: The Ventilation Shaft in the Pump Station.
This album was recorded in an old, partially abandoned cement factory close to the borders of Russia and China. Its skeletal metal structures are rich in haunting low-frequency (over)tones, Jan's highly sensitive geophones (devices used for seismic recording) allow us to hear the earth-shaking sonic worlds of these ghostly locations.
Jan Ryhalsky was born and lives in the far east of Russia. He began to record sounds in 2010, and quickly dove deep into recording theory. The main focus of his research is sounds with low intensity, often beyond the threshold of human hearing.
