Now that Dragon’s Eye is no longer releasing new recordings, Wyndel Hunt has turned to Simulacra for his latest release. The 4 pieces on this album, all of which are about 10 minutes long, mix unprocessed field recordings with drones created by bass guitar and harmonica. On the opening title track, the field recordings are pushed to the forefront, leaving the instrumental drones buried somewhat, but still prominent. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which is which; “Elision Field” sounds pretty easily split between bass guitar noise-drone and some sort of industrial fan or air conditioning system. And “Pragmatism” feels like a cocoon of warm, slightly fuzzy drone, which gets a bit buzzy and blurry during the middle of its duration. Closer “Everything That Rises Does Not Converge” seems calm and formless, and gets silent for a few minutes, but then re-emerges with some insect-like sounds, along with some very distant drone. This album takes a few listens to really sink in, and the second track still throws me off a bit, but there’s some incredibly lovely sounds here.
