BOKOR – The Field

(Dreamland)

This is one of the best releases in the series of Dreamland’s “mini records”. I could define Bokor’s dark sound as a perfect example of what post-industrial ambient can be, when the music is focused on exploring interesting frequencies instead of searching for the “scare” elements at any cost. “The field” grows slowly but constantly, perfectly capturing that desolated picture of silence and abandon typical of the instants following a total destruction of something. What I bear in my ears is the long reverb following the collapse of an old building: only dust and some volatile presence remain – the rest is all but dead.
