GLACIAL MOVEMENTS RECORDS
RAPOON: TIME FROST
Cold winds... Hostile, bare and cold places. Glacial Movements Records
proudly presents the musical vision of great cold by one of the
biggest artists of the ritual/dark ambient scene of all times:
RAPOON co-founded the influential music collective ZOVIET FRANCE
Time Frost is an exciting opera that will catch you with its 5 movement
spyre between lights, obscurity and freezing whispers.
“One of the predicted swings in the weather due to global warming is paradoxically a new ice age
which could envelope Europe. Time Frost is music based upon this concept and uses tiny fragments of music from an iconic
European composition, Johann Strauss's Blue Danube. I imagined that tiny pieces of former cultures survived locked in the ice and
waiting for future archaeologists to discover and interpret them.I used vinyl lock grooves of the Blue Danube
(from the 1968 MGM recording for the film soundtrack 2001 )
These formed the starting points for the five compositions in Time Frost
which were then manipulated and added to and re-arranged into new compositions.
Time Frost is an imaginary recording of the mutational process of sound locked into ice and transformed over millenia.
Like ghosts of music trapped in an evershifting permafrost."
