This is the first opportunity I've had to listen to Danish artist Peter Bach Nicolaisen. I like what I'm hearing; strange soundscapes and really good sound design, possibly some field recordings, distant hints of melody and slightly sinister ambient. Not an easy one to describe which I find is usually a good sign that a piece of work is original. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for decent acousmatic audio. It's possibly a super lazy comparison but I think elements will appeal to followers of Machinefabriek. Ltd hand numbered edition of 50 copies.
