FRom the earth below to the sky above with Peripheral Method and Alessandro Penna #ambient #drone #electronic

Let’s drone on into Tuesday with Peripheral Method and Alessandro Penna. Two ambient tunes that range from the world around us to the sky above us.

Peripheral Method first with We’re Young; It Happens, taken from the The Radio Is Dead LP (free download). This opens with the earthly concerns of blipping electronics and the annoyance of the random car alarm. This track has had me tutting and curtain twitching almost every time I’ve listened to it. There’s washes of static and a blanket drone deadness. I guess this is probably best described as a soundscape, rather than a track as such. There’s no tune, there’s simply a mood of ennui that simply washes around. Clever stuff, skillfully handled.

Next, Alessandro Penna returns with something that looks upwards into space and down to the ground on Low Earth Orbit. Taken from the album Relativity this has a simple air of wonder at our planet as it gradually reveals and the track takes shape. A slomo whirling of space and time and infinity. Cosmic ambient perfection.
