No one can accuse Yann Novak & Robert Crouch of aiming too low. Their Fata Morgana, part 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).
