It’s no state secret that I’m a film junkie. I don’t watch TV. I do have a couple of shows that I follow thanks to the power of the internet and things like iTunes. I prefer stuff without commercials, so I don’t mind the small price to watch a show. Film has a bigger power draw to me. There’s something very magical about being in a big room in the dark with a massive screen. It’s powerful.
The thing that makes a film even more powerful than the story itself is the music. Hands down, music can really make or break a film. It enhances the mood. It defines a tone. I always pay attention to the soundtrack. I have a vested interest in it as that’s where some of the music I create is destined to be going.
In the soundtrack of a film is exactly where I hear today’s Single of the Day. With one of the strangest names I’ve heard of for a project I have no idea what to even say other than it is strange. Asbestoscape. What do you make of a name like that? Is it dangerous? Sneaky?
I can hear this coming thru some speakers in a large auditorium while I’m watching some modern film noir. Simple. Dark. Moody. Engrossing. These are words that are conjured in my head as I listen, and re-listen and so on. I’m a fan of dark music. It’s a wonder why I don’t write much of it myself. I think the blokes in asbestoscape are doing a fine job of it though.
If you dig Pink Floydian dark soundscapes this is certainly a disc you should pick up. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Unless you want it to paint blood on the walls too, then it might be a little light.
