This album is compiled of material composed especially for St. Giga, Japan: a satellite broadcast radio station that transmits ambient music 24 hours a day and whose programming was based around current tidal movements. Composed and mixed by Kim Cascone and originally released on his seminal Silent imprint in 1995. Initially a visual artist, Cascone was said to be drawn to the aural collage of cinema soundtracks. He received formal instruction in structural arrangement and composition of electronic music at the Berklee School of Music until 1973, then went on to study with Dana McCurdy at the New School in Manhattan. After gaining experience as an audio technician, Cascone worked with David Lynch on both the syndicated television pilot 'Twin Peaks' and the movie 'Wild at Heart.' The gorgeous and mesmerising soundscapes on this release are just made for drifting and will certainly appeal to fans of Pete Namlook or Biosphere.
