Various Artists - 360° fou15
"In answer to several inquiries let me note that there is NO NARRATION on this release. The story fragments are presented as text inside the booklet, not as spoken word recordings."
--M. Bentley, The Foundry
2002. New compilation from Foundry/Hypnos featuring Rhomb, eM, High Skies, Seofon with Mark Van Hoen, Sketch, Thermal, and Kim Cascone.
The Foundry says:
This compilation has as its center point a story fragment, a series of episodes taking our narrator through an enigmatic arc, an arc becoming a circle, an arc of 360°. Tracks draw on a variety of electronic music flavours, from ambient electronica to microsound and glitch. Contributors to 360° are, in order of appearance: Rhomb (releases on The Foundry and Archipelago imprint), eM (releases on The Foundry, Archipelago and Fallt), Jonathan Hughes (formerly Subspace with release on Sunburst Fifty), High Skies (Mat Jarvis, formerly Gas on Emit), Seofon with Mark Van Hoen (Seofon is a member of Ambient Temple of Imagination as well as a solo artist; Mark Van Hoen has released work as Locust and under his own name on Touch), Sketch (releases on Apollo and on End of Hum), Thermal (releases on his own Boxman label and Archipelago imprint), and Kim Cascone (releases on Ritornell and Digital Narcis among many others). Quite a range of talented artists!
