(New Album Review) Strom Noir- ΕΣΟΠΤΡΟΝ

Strom Noir, Slovakian sound artist Emil Matko, makes warm, enveloping ambient with a methodolgy similar to Hakobune’s: through the layering of faint, delayed-to-the-aether tones. Though the best entry point into his discography would be through the mysterious, endlessly trailing ostinato melodies of Dni Stratili Svoju Farbu (Days Lost their Colors), his new album ΕΣΟΠΤΡΟΝ (Espotron: Inner Mirror), released on cassette by ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ early in March 2015, is just as lovely. Matko’s meticulous work has produced blissfully dreamy soundscapes– the early spring to Hakobune and Nobuto Suda’s late autumn. This one is a must-listen for all fans of sound art and ambient music.
