Just like yesterday I will start with ambient music today. It has a different character though, and comes from Interzone Inc and the album “Beautiful Decay”. Behind the name Interzone Inc we find Göran Kinnander, an artist who has created music under this name since the eighties. The music has varied but lately it’s focused to some extent on ambient electronica, which is also the base on this album.
The music is not that easily described, though, as ambient backgrounds, there is a lot of dynamics here, where he explores minimalistically created environments to grand soundscapes, from the melodic to the monotone. The biggest surprise arrives in the seventh track “Just Me”, which heads off with a hard, industrial electronica with screaming synths and where he also sings, for the first time actually. It works great, skakes you around, and afterwards we land in perhaps the most quiet and ambient track, “Panic Room”. He says that this is his most personal release so far and also writes: “Trying to describe that even in decay, and eventually death, there can be beauty.” It’s a quite fascinating journey in sound which makes me curious about his other work as well. On his Bandcamp-page there are another 14 releases to explore… Here are two tracks from “Beautiful Decay”:
