Aquasonic Research Society

A 8 track ambient album (22m 37s) — released September 4th 2020 on Som Recordings

Som Recordings presents its new library-themed release - an exploration in aquatic sound.

Recorded in the basement of an ex-spring factory building in West Berlin, the new release captures a spontaneous meeting of three creative minds: Jerusalem's psychedelic groove expert, Markey Funk, and two members of Berlin bass combo X.A.Cute - SunRa Bullock and Wuzi Khan. Stepping out of their comfort zone, the three used the iridescent and bubbly qualities of vibraphone, minimalist electronics and occasional percussion in an improvised one-take session. The result is "Aquasonic Research Society" - 8 pieces of meditative cinematic music, set to take the listener on a deep dive towards the bottom of the ocean - without the dangers of decompression.

Recommended for fans of "underwater library" albums by Alessandro Alessandroni, Amedeo Tommasi, Walt Rockman, and Fabio Fabor.
