"Amarok"
Year:    2010
Country:  Spain
City:    Madrid
Label:    Glacial Movements
Format:    CD
Tracks:    1
Time:    64 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:           Ambient           Noise















Two years of hard work have been employed using sounds and processed field recordings. It’s a unequalled conceptual soundscape in this artist’s huge discography and it perfectly joins to Glacial Movements aesthetics. After a few seconds from the track beginning we are dip into an arctic trip which lasts more than an hour and in which tangled weavings in a masterly fashion handled by the Spanish artist appear, develop and dissolve. Gusts of arctic wind, the Amarok’s wheezing breath (Amarok is the name of a gigantic wolf in Inuit mythology) and the sense of loss in the polar night are only some of the sensations that this cryogenic hallucinatory acoustic is able to evoke.

Rarity! 1995 album from Spain's Francisco López. Francisco López's monumental catalogue of field recordings, ultra minimalism, and Zen-like barely modulating pure tone recordings is a daunting one to step into. This CD collects two distinct bodies of López' work with "Qal'at Abd'Al-Salam" (recorded 1992 - a loosely connected collection of field recordings of public spaces) and "O Parladoiro Desamortuxad
