"Unfathomless (U01) ~Tsukubai~" (feature)
Parallel to the ongoing Mystery Sea series, with its ?night ocean
drones? and related metaphorical psycho-activity, Daniel Crokaert has
inaugurated a sister label. Unfathomless seeks to mine potentially wider
and deeper audio-documentary veins - natural, man-made, fictive, as well
as other related environmental experiences implicating memory and senses.

""rivages sur l'antipode" - d'incise" (review)
Releasing yet another fine objet d'art of metaphorical antipodesian
soundscapes, the ini.itu imprint have once again reinforced their unique
take on experimental global sound. ?Ravages sur l?antipode? by d?incise,
aka Laurent Peter is something akin to a palmiset of southern sound,

"Arctic Summits - Netherworld" (review)
Netherworld's stated working method is to start from tiny fragments of
classical music and various other kinds of field recordings and found
sounds, manipulated and processed to evoke polar silences. The results
often include lush harmonies, whose surface calm contains touches of
grit that provide a surreal undercurrent in his ever-shifting arctic
review by Caleb Deupree

"Crossing Of Shadows" (review)
Previously orchestramaxfieldparrish has navigated interstices between
ambient, drone and neo-classical, dealing in a blend of ritual, drone
and post-Gothic colourings and wispy atmospherics. A questing
sensibility issues here in a turning away from repetition of gestures.
What once was was restless with experiment, now seems more restrained.

"Unfathomless (U02) ~Tactile.Surface~" (review)
Unfathomless (U02): A choreography of the chthonic constitutes much of
this engaging excursion. Sources for Tactile.Surface were recorded in
diverse settings: Turra?s room in Schio, Italy, and one of McFall?s
trips from Kansas to Colorado. Their combined aesthetic is one of stark
isolationism, with a mix of familiar components bringing new timbral
skin to the old ceremony.

"Unfathomless (U03) ~Lack Affix~" (review)
Unfathomless (U03): Built upon the grouping of field recordings from
Maryland, Washington D.C. and Argentina. Nicholas Szczepanik & Juan José
Calarco traded field recordings in constructing this glowering but not
inhospitable collage, processing and mixing audio spoils from their
respective areas jointly into a work of substantial clarity and
particulate involvement.

"Unfathomless (U04) ~Lignes d?erre & Randons~" (review)
Unfathomless (U04): continuing the pursual of grimly fluid,
introspective, subterranean drone, a style that's become increasingly
widespread as others follow where Daniel Crokaert et al. lead. There are
few, though, as proficient as Kassel Jaeger, who augments the house
style, widening the palette through inclusion of electronics, and
deepening interaction with source material.

"Unfathomless (U05) ~Zeltini~" (review)
Unfathomless (U05): Revenant is an open-membership project involving a
number of specialists of location recording. Zeltini's eponymous
environment is an abandoned Soviet army base in a Latvian forest - large
horizontal bunkers where missiles were stored, one of which was used in
a semi-transcendental experience in which the participants dispersed in
almost total darkness.
