Beatless, desolate, lost sounds. This album was composed entirely using Virtual ANS.

The ANS synthesizer is a photoelectronic musical instrument created by Russian engineer Evgeny Murzin from 1937 to 1957. The technological basis of his invention was the method of graphical sound recording used in cinematography (developed in Russia concurrently with USA), which made it possible to obtain a visible image of a sound wave, as well as to realize the opposite goal—synthesizing a sound from an artificially drawn sound spectrogram. - from Wikipedia

I thought this was an original idea until I discovered that Coil released a triple album of ANS noise back in 2004. Oh well.

Recorded Nov 2013 - May 2014 in between other projects.

D.N.P......Dona Nobis Pacem.....Grant us peace

All sounds by Chris Downing.
