Foetusdreams "Brouillard" CDr


Winter-Light is extremely proud and happy to announce its very first release on the Winter-Light label by the Dutch dark ambient producer, FoetusDreams. "Brouillard"is the first full length dark ambient album produced by FoetusDreams, who has previously contributed music to compilations.

From start to finish "Brouillard" is a real ambient journey; sometimes an introspective one, sometimes a glance from the inside looking out and far beyond the reach of the human eye. The tracks are beautifully sculpted pieces of ambient excellence and from the opening moments of the first you are transported into the world of"FoetusDreams". Rich drones resonate across starkly crafted, ice-cold landscapes where your only companions are the sounds that flow around you. Vibrant musical layers, occasionally punctuated with a clever use of samples, draw the listener ever further away from reality towards a deeper, more meaningful sense of self. You could easily be standing on the edge of the universe looking out, or traversing the caverns of your own mind in a search for that place of inner peace. The title track"Brouillard" is a master class in drone ambient with its ever present trance inducing hum that lowers a mist over the eyes and takes you to a very dark place indeed.

If you are looking to go on a journey then it begins right here. The tracks have been mastered by Frederic Arbour from Cyclic Law.

"Brouillard follows a dark ambient formula that I find particularly effective: a series of slow, drawn-out, spacious tones that gradually flow into one another, allowing plenty of room for an array of sampled detritus to drift here and there. It’s assuredly not a new formula, but Stevenaar navigates his dream-spaces with poise and restraint, careful not to stray too far. Take the solemn introspective slow-chord bent of Kammarheit and add a drop or two of the deep-space grandeur of acts like Phaenon and Visions (Brouillard was mastered by Frederic Arbour, owner of the influential Cyclic Law imprint, and it shows), and you’re getting close to the feel of FoetusDreams." - Edward Rinderie (Heathen Harvest) 8/10. 

"There is only one God and that God is man himself."

Professionally manufactured CD-r comes in a beautifully produced 6-panel digipack. 10 tracks, total running time 62:51. Edition is limited to 150 copies.
