Iszoloscope - Les Gorges Des Limbes


Ant Zen

To celebrate the five-year anniversary of Iszoloscope, Yann Faussurier has a five-track treat—Les Gorges Des Limbes. Similar to the dark atmospheres and hollow drones of Aquifère, Les Gorges Des Limbes is just the flipside to his previous release, Au Seuil du Néant, which weaves in and out of the gloomy ambience with perfect breaks of harsh and noisy rhythms. The balance between the two albums shows the amazing talent and diversity of Iszoloscope. The 60 minutes of distant spooky voices, hollow winds and bass fading in and out are actually older material produced as a side project between May 1999 and December 2000. Now we are left guessing what Yann will do next with his musical brilliance and mad ninja skills.
