You may have noticed how my online presence have been somewhat limited the past month or so. I apologise for this as it has been no intention to leave anybody in the dark as for my whereabouts. The truth is I have been neglecting my writing about games, music and such in order to make something of my own, which is now complete and ready for anybody to pass their judgement.
That thing is my new album Ooroo made under my weird moniker Imhotep Is Invisible which you can listen to right here:
What is it then? It’s six tracks totalling just under 50 minutes of ambient, electronic droning noise. I’ve always been a fan of dark ambient artists like Kammarheit, Raison d’Être and Sephiroth to name a handful and the footprints they left on me can surely be spotted in my work. I am a complete amateur and most of this is built up of sampling, distorting and feebly trying to create some sort of order in the chaotic. I’m not sure it worked but I’m still proud of the damned thing. I sincerely hope you’ll like it and if you didn’t notice it’s up for FREE download right now at this link. Listen and let me know what the hell you reckon!
Props should go out to my boys in Starship Amazing for letting me create an entire track solely out of various snippets and samples from their songs. That track is opener “Then They Handed You A Gun” and one of my own favourites. I hope they and you aren’t too fussed with my blasphemy.
So now I hope to return to some kind of semi-regular updating schedule. As I’m broke as a farmer with slim pigs, I won’t be able to buy, play and subsequently review many games in the near future, namely Portal 2, but I hope to be able to provide some sort of entertainment regardless. You lot deserve it.
