Genre/Influences: Experimental, ambient.

Background/Info: I did not find a lot of information about Nigel Samways and Foss Moigne. Both artists seem to share a common interest in experimental and ambient music. This production is based upon the original source material “Sanyo 07​.​1 / Sanyo 07​.​2” which was recorded in 2007 by Nigel Samways.

Content: The original material was recorded in Japan by a dictaphone and consisted of field recordings. It creates an ambient and experimental touch, which is rapidly recognizable on these remixes. You feel like you are walking through sterile sound corridors some distant spoken vocals lost in an anguishing ocean of despair.

+ + + : Both remixes of “Sanyo” are noticeable cuts, which will appeal to lovers of experimental sound treatments. I like the way the basis of the recording has been transposed and reworked into a fascinating ambient sound. I like the cold and mysterious atmospheres hanging over the tracks while the extra cut (cf. “Midnight Temple – Coda”) totally fits in the global approach.

– – – : I regret there are only 3 tracks featured on this disc. I got an insatiable feeling at the end, but that’s more like a compliment.

Conclusion: Nigel Samways & Foss Moigne stands for an exploration of intriguing ambient passages that will rapidly awake your deepest fantasies and create an imaginary visual content fitting to the sound.

Best songs: “Sanyo 07.2 Remix”.

Rate: (7½).

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
