1993 marked the release of an atmospheric anthology nesting in The Acid City. This, the second in the series, sees the SF-ambient praxis preen its new feathers and take majestic flight across the oceans. From Australia, Pelican Daughters create ‘Aurascape,’ with its wavering, organic stillness. Canadian eccentrics Legion of Green Men submit the resplendent ‘Mosaic Eye: Depressurization Sensation (Ataractic Tessera)’ or some such quirky nonsense. Cirrus Minor from Nuremburg leave behind the echoing chants of ‘Zulu’ as they pass overhead. From Frankfurt, Pete Namlook contributes ‘Wind,’ which actually does linger, though in keeping with his customary offerings remains a tad too generic. Disproving the notion of ambient as a withdrawal mechanism, the intricate improvisations of Tylervision keep you listening, completely engaged with the vulnerability of ‘The Last Human.’ Single Cell Orchestra’s magnificent opus, ‘Unleashing the Horrors of Some of Our Great Power’ conveys emotions that are dark, overwhelming and deeply catastrophic. ‘Tranquility 2’ filters the frequencies of Roman opulence and velveteen textures into windswept and wayward audio mirages. The result often sensual, always free-flowing, is to transform the electronic foundations of sound into imaginary continents of gold like some concealed alchemical practice.
