Freiband Communes with Bass Communion

A barren-ambient snippet of their new collaboration

The Important Records label has posted a gorgeously minimal swath of barren ambient music off a release by Bass Communion (Steven Wilson) and Freiband (Frans de Waard). It is like digital marbles let lose over and over in some dark, dry space, a space whose contours seem to expand and contort as the piece continues. It opens in near silence, and it isn’t so much that it gets louder — though it does — as that the silence gets closer and more consuming.

Track originally posted at soundcloud.com/importantrecords. More on the release, titled simply Bass Communion / Freiband, at importantrecords.com. More from Wilson at stevenwilsonhq.com and de Waard at fransdewaard.com.
