More Info

"First Station is a seven-track album featuring ambient, dark-ambient, and experimental minimal music comprised of electronically manipulated field recordings fused with guitar noise and drones developed by Keith Rose. Based on seven paintings by late abstract expressionist artist Barnett Newman, the albums individual tracks structurally mimic (though not contrived) Newmans minimalist, single-stroke technique, which he called his Zip. In addition, when translated sonically, Newmans use of a single color for his paintings fields afforded a great deal of creative freedom when designing each tracks overall soundscape. Additional textures include female vocals by Rebecca Reis-Miller and cello performed by Yamilet Trujillo." [label info]
