Veteran ambient duo Zachary and Denny Corsa’s latest release is a single long-form improvisation. Recorded under icy conditions with broken equipment, Lamentations’ minor-key, wistful motifs perfectly capture the bitterly cold weather of Lost Trail’s North Carolina home.
This is a really solid release, a 16 minute long song that creates a great soundscape.
The song opens with bird sounds and a drone and has a brilliantly evolving melody backed by a haunting choral type of voice which sounds reversed at times which gives a great edge. There is excellent use of sounds throughout, creating quite a hypnotic song but with a really nice tension too. The song is excellently layered and produced, a great interplay and contrast at times between the different elements of the song.
