lustmord Dark Matter (double LP, £19.95)label: hydrahead
Welsh musician Brian Williams (aka Lustmord) is largely credited as the originator of the "Dark Ambient" genre. He has credits on over 40 motion pictures including "The Crow" and "Underworld" and has worked with Chris & Cosey, Clock DVA, SPK, Melvins, Tool etc. Derived from an audio library of cosmological activity collected between 1993 and 2003, Lustmord gathered Dark Matter from various sources including NASA, The Very Large Array, The National Radio Astronomy Observatory and various educational institutions and private contributors throughout the USA. Lustmord writes: "Approximately sixty-eight percent of the Universe is unseen dark energy and approximately 27 percent is unseen dark matter. We have yet to discover what dark matter is, and only know the things it is not... The universe began of darkness, not of light. While space is a virtual vacuum, it does not mean there is no sound in space. It exists in space as naturally occurring electromagnetic vibrations, many well within the range of human hearing while others exist at different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and these can be adjusted with software to bring them within our audio range."
