A thick dark ocean of space ambient frequencies or the sound of uncharted universe? Red Clouds continues to experiment with cosmic noises in these four magnificent tracks. The dominant dark ambient soundscape attribute is a container that encapsulates subtle elements such as a futuristic cosmic subject-matter, a laborious frequency manipulation and drone collaged sounds. His work could be a field recording in a location of a remote solar system or the slowly ever changing distant lights of a city. They look static but there are not. A value found in the essence of ambient music as defined by Mixmaster Morris.
Red Clouds is James Hoehl and he comes from the East Coast of USA. In the last 20 years there are discrete values, which characterize his work such as dark ambient soundscapes, space noise, drone and collaged sounds.
