« Again, the sound is created from slow organ drones, but on this (aptly named) album the drones even get more minimal, up to the point where they are humming almost unnoticed, unless you actively pay attention to what you’re hearing. »
« I’ve been meaning to mention the work of the ambient/drone label Textural Records for quite a while, and somehow I’ve always missed the opportunity to do so. Now I’m making up for this mistake with a non-human sounding (that’s the staple of albums by Textural Recs – if you’re into some sprawling ambience, check out their entire catalog!), eerie release by Transparent Body. The name like this implies invisibility – just like the ambient music is somewhat “invisible” by default – relying on textures and atmospheres instead of melody and rhythm, it always lingers in the background, making barely audible sounds, seeping into the subconscious. Just like somebody with a transparent body might be present in a room with nobody noticing, the music of Transparent Body often flows without much notice from the uninvolved listener. But when transparent body makes a move, and when there’s a shift of music, one notices the presence and a sense of terror kicks in.
Powerful through minimal means. »
