20 Singular MP3s

Twenty short pieces comprise K.M. KrebsThe Jade Furnace I, a recent free download from the Treetrunk netlabel. Though the individual tracks each strike a singular sound and stick to it, many of them approach four minutes in length, and thus can’t be considered miniatures, per se. Cycling cicadas fill up one entry (“Unscal”), while flanging gongs (“Psulty”) and what might be mumbling vocoders (“Riveal”) do others. One personal favorite layers recordings of alarm clocks (“Edgemerams”). More info at Krebs’ site (833-45.net) and that of Treetrunk, archive.org/details/treetrunk. (Thanks to Larry Johnson for the recommendation.)
