Petcord Volume 1 – The Audio Fringe
After nearly three years of existence the Petcord netlabel celebrates its birthday with a compilation that is supposed to outline the kind of music that can be usually heard on our albums: electroacoustic, dark ambient, drone and otherwise experimental clicks, feedback and crackling tone generators. Whilst the music has the tendency of being gloomy, tension ridden and at times dissonant, there are also some brief moments of peace and relief. Complexity and work out structures vary, depending on the music’s intention but often fail to comply to common stereotypes. For this compilation, all artists contributed exclusive tracks that haven’t been released on any Petcord album before, which make this compilation more or less a collector’s item, too.
