Genre/Influences: Ambient, Experimental, Abstract.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: London (UK) based Ian Williams has been already involved in projects such as Beautiful Pea Green Boat, Bushido and Gamine. He’s also the label owner of Slaughterback. “All Becomes Desert” is his newest solo-album, which is clearly inspired by the immensity of deserts.
Content: The work features 5 cuts, which are into pure improvisation although switching from pure Ambient to surprising Acid sequences to Abstract music.
+ + + : I like the idea of the concept, which has been created by the magic of analogue sound treatments. “Outback” is the most surprising and captivating cut for its Acid-like sound treatments transposed into a kind of Minimal-Ambient style.
– – – : Some passages are pretty monotone and into a free-styled Experimental format, which is hardly accessible.
Conclusion: “All Becomes Desert” is a fascinating concept created by pure Experimental Electro.
Best songs: “Outback”.
