More Info"Nocturnal Emissions have been exploring the uncharted no man’s land between experimental sound performance, pop music, and spoken word poetry for over 30 years. This live recording of a Nocturnal Emissions show in November 2011 is proof of the fact that they’re still constantly evolving. Deceptively bucolic ambient soundscapes give way to darker undercurrents in the bass. The 40-minute set is characterised by subtle, almost imperceptible transformations, when a subdued pulsing that began as a flanged synthesizer chord suddenly turns out to be an actual beat that one could - well, not dance, possibly, but tap one’s foot to.
“Compost” manages the feat that the music appears to be rather calm, never aggressive in any way, but leaves you with a mounting sense of tension that you cannot quite put your finger on. As if there is something going on in darker corners of the music, your brain, or whatever – exciting to listen to. „Compost“ was recorded on 17 November, 2011 at Die Ganze Bäckerei in Augsburg, Germany. Organised by Attenuation Circuit, the concert featured a performance by Nigel Ayers, the remaining founding member of Nocturnal Emissions. While most of Nocturnal Emissions’ previous releases can be found on www.earthlydelights.co.uk, this album offers a glimpse of the current state of Nigel’s work as an electronic composer and solo performer."
