"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Salt Flats

No one can accuse Yann Novak & Robert Crouch of aiming too low. Their Fata Morganapart of last year's AxS Festival & released on Murmur this week, "mirrors the rare and complex mirage phenomenon which hauntingly inverts the boundaries of figure and ground over both desert lands and seas."

This exquisite, heat-hazed piece - a distant shimmer, a wispy chimera - is "a kind of fragmented travelogue, reconstructed through field recordings from the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah and Lake Mead in the Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada". 

Below hear a stereo mix "recomposed for home listening". Or stream the full 45 minutes (Spotify).

Also tuck into an extract from Novak's similarly gripping 3 Surfaces & take a 40-minute whistle-stop tour across his full discography (including last year's Presence, plus Relocation.Reconstruction & The Breeze Blowing Over Us)...
