Various Muting the Noise
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: Innervisions
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
Innervisions’ inaugural CD release is probably not what you’d expect if you’ve already been seduced by previous 12-inches from the likes of Atjazz, Chateau Flight, and Stefan Goldman, or imprint boss Dixon’s awesome contribution to Get Physical’s Body Language series. Apparently inspired by Brian Eno’s similarly disposed recordings (and by a visit to Japan), Muting the Noise is an attempt to renew the credence of “ambient” music via contributions from the likes of Henrik Schwarz and Tokyo Black Star. Most successful–that is, most lovely–are tracks from Karma and Âme, that recall no one so much as early-’90s atmosphericists Insides. Exquisite.
