‘i present you, on the 5th anniversary of iszoloscope, a collection of selected ambient works that were produced as a side project between may 1999 and december 2000. this is the first time that they have been published. in loving memory, i am pleased to introduce you to “les gorges des limbes” '. (yann faussurier)
iszoloscope has already demonstrated his skills in dark, ambient soundscapes on earlier releases (such as his last release on ant-zen) and via his live appearances.
this music is the perfect soundtrack for console games like 'silent hill' or 'project eden'. faussurier's addiction to video games seems to be the impetus for creating these moods.
during this 60 minute album you can dive into gloomy, soundtrackish spheres and sink deeper into swelling synth layers. all the while terrifying voice samples and bass erruptions fade in and out - no beat will catch your fall.
a highly recommended release, showing another part of this great artist's variety.

Dark Complex is an enhanced compilation of Alphaxone's work, offering us the best bits of his previous releases on various labels after remastering them.
This is a good way to discover a promising artist, mostly dark ambient but not hesitating to pick features from the "light" ambient world (like Dissolving, less oppressing than other tracks).
Take hypnotizing drones, add some dissonant chimes and chorus plus exhaling synths, and you get a sort of mutant dark ambient album really seducing. Dotflac
