At a time when the dominance of capital and greed blanket our world in a singular destructive objective, Angel deploy a reductionist technique that opens a path towards a potential new reality. Slow moving drones peer from the cracks providing a fluid motion of dark beauty. This is Angel at their most abstract, their most static and the result is their most focussed work to date. <br /> Exquisitely produced by the line up of Ilpo V&auml;is&auml;nen (csg, oscillators, effects), and Dirk Dresselhaus (guitar, oscillators, effects) with guests Hildur Gu&eth;nad&oacute;ttir (cello, voice) and Lucio Capece (bass clarinet, soprano saxophone, preparations) Terra Null. takes the listener on a journey from the acoustic dominant timbre's of the opening 'Naked Land' crossing into the shadowy instrumental interplay of 'Monolake' and the microtonal explorations of 'Colonialists'. <br /> 'Quake' concludes proceedings with an assault of drones, distortion and instrumental aggression, an expression of complete dissatisfaction that offers a means of reconsideration. <br /> Terra Null. embraces radical long form statements of both musical and political matter.
