[S] is the mysterious man behind many projects such as Exit In Grey, Five Elements
Music, Radioson, Redhouse, Black Deal With Snow, Candyman And Evil Flowers and
Sister Loolomie, but now he adds Ion & Sophus to that list and I must confess I lost
track of the differences between all these names. I believe some were to be a bit more
on the experimental side, but when I am listening to the two pieces on 'Love Of One' I
don't seem to hear much difference with some of his other output. Here we have two
pieces made with the use of field recordings on the Black Sea and these sea waves
are transformed into two pieces of ambient music/drone/atmospherics of the highest
order. In the first part these waves sound suddenly very synthesizer like, which hoovers
closely to the world of new age. The second part on the other hand shows that the roots
of [S] lie firmly within the world of dark drones and the sombre atmosphere surely reflect
the name of the sea. I was thinking in terms of day and night here. The first is light and
it is the daytime, whereas the second is the nighttime version of the piece. The first has
majestic waves but in the night version it is all rather a bit staler and we must be careful
our vessel doesn't hit upon objects floating in the water. Pleasantly dark and hardly
a surprise in musical development. (fdW)
