V/A - Vanishing Standards MC
A New compilation from AMEK
'Aquatic Rituals' by V-Stók is an ambient album which explores the human connection to water bodies such as rivers, seas and ponds through sound metaphors in which melodic and rhythmic elements float through dense layers of aquatic noise, atmospheres and chaos. On one hand sybmolising an attempt for ecological coexistence with nature and on the other the human strife to build and look for meaning, harmony and symmetry through the organised chaos and immensity of nature.
Production-wise, 'Aquatic Rituals' employs a combination of methods and tools such as: hydrophone and field recordings (from various places in France, Italy, Bulgaria, Iceland, UK), analog and digital synthesis and electro-acoustic performance
