Artist: Skjølbrot
Album: Maersk
Label: Dan Bennett

Skjølbrot’s experimental ambient music incorporates on-location recordings of train stations, supermarket refrigerators and demolition crews (to name a few) with slow droning piano and strings. The result is dark and cinematic – and would serve magnificently as a horror movie score. Anxiety, paranoia and death. Instrumental (No FCCs).

1.(4:22): Dissonant piano chords over train-station droning and metallic string noodling. Tense and distorted.
2.(7:22): Distant reverberating bird songs and wind chimes with a deep, decayed bass. Makes your stomach drop.
3.(2:26): A ghostly choir with departing sighs/breathing and clipping wind. Beautifully sad.
4.(6:23): Machine feedback, intense piano and metal clanging. Like walking through a foggy, abandoned shipyard at midnight.
5.(4:54): Long, resonant strings, static and radio voices. Post-apocalyptic feel.
6.(8:27): Refrigeration, compressed air, and effected voices. Sigur Rós sound, but darker.
7.(4:51): Storm of distortion and dissonant tones. Noise.
