Croatan Ensemble: Without

Space lovers should dig this unsettling journey into the deep dark reaches of the universe, as Croatan Ensemble, who are basically the duo of Bill K and Jason P, use everything but the kitchen sink to come up with six spooky improvs that go back to the days of Tangerine Dream's Zeit album. Strings, laptop, electronics, mics, pedals, synths, pipe instruments, and generators, are all listed as the gear that these two manipulated to put Without together, and while some of what you hear on this CD is quite chilling and adventurous, like "concentration camps" and the three-part "the ideology of control", you'll probably be of the opinion that you've heard this sort of thing before from the already mentioned Tangerine Dream or even some of Pink Floyd's earlier, pre-Dark Side of the Moon material. I will say this, if you fancy dark, ominous electronic space music, this is pretty creepy stuff, and sure to evoke some tingling of the hairs on the back of your neck.
