patient_ot Excellent collaboration by two somewhat obscure artists working on the darker side of ambient. Really well put together with great atmosphere. This is from the time period before this sort of music became overdone and cliched. Essential stuff. Also check out Ruhr Hunter's "Ritual Before the Hunt" CD, it is another great one.
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The debut collaborative collection entitled "One" from audible painters Vadim Gusis (pictured above) and Chet W. Scott. Offering a collection of eight desolate movements, exploring ancient spirits and environmental soundscapes recorded within Israel's Dead Sea. With a minimalist sound design and ritualistic composition, tonal passages open doorways to a lull of trance inducing instrumentation. "One" of the most intimate yet unsettling audible experiences of 2001. Featuring guest appearances by Shurik Waits and Vera Agnivolok of Israel's experimental folk atavisim "AGNIVOLOK"


    ​It's as if the darkness itself is mocking it's inhabitants. "One" has a pervasive ethereal quality throughout it, open spaces and heavy shadows that stretch across newly conceived lands. Repeating sounds mark your path and root you to the ground as the genesis of something unforeseen finds it's footing in a embryonic world. As with both of these artists individual works, "One" is a record for the attentive listener, only fully appreciated in it's entirety."

    ​Chaos As Shelter + Ruhr Hunter = a dark soundscape masterpiece!

    Two artists at their best melding together in a genius way. The folk-ambient of Israel's Chaos As Shelter comes through with traditional instruments ghost-like in the background, while Ruhr Hunter succeeds in coating the world with drift. But pieces vary greatly, with a character in each track that is never repeated. Somehow sad, doom, slow and nostalgic, "One" manages to be spacy, refined and yet full of antiquity in its spirit. Bringing to mind ancient things, ancient places, haunted, dragging through space on a tour of equally dead planets, mystics having left their ruins, their libraries, their statues and monuments. This is slow and instrumental drone of ghost-planet winds, blowing through abandoned spaces. Not simply an ambient disc, lots of fine musicianship as well.

    ​All of the artwork is printed in faded bronze colors with some metallic bronze layers also taking part. The imagery is all abstract and seems a perfect fit for the audio accompaniment. The booklet folds out from the center from a cut up the middle of the back. Each flap has one project's sigils spot varnished in a gloss overlay. A stunning, stunning presentation. Well done! "One" truly balances the ethereal nature of Chaos as Shelter with the dark, disturbing sounds of Ruhr Hunter. Nice work, and a pleasant combination. Fans of either project should not be disappointed. Another recommendation for true ambient fans.
