Drifting in Silence – Ladderdown
Ladderdown weaves a tight web from beatless and atmospheric ambiences which – unlike other artists’ deliberately combined ambient sound layers – unveil obvious structures and a clear sound design. drifting in silence creates the space needed for associations and harmonic melodies, somewhere in between of brian eno and the highly appreciated geir “biosphere” jenssen. At first ladderdown makes you feel safe. but just when you think you have found your key to this release, stembridge surprises with new facets like skillfully integrated electro-influences and groovy beats showing their sharp teeth. The listener is moved up and down in waves while he watches all parts of the puzzle combine to a whole: an extremely multi-layered and versatile ambient release which just makes you want more.
