about

For some unknown reason, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy shoots out an X-ray flare about once a day. These flares last a few hours with the brightness ranging from a few times to nearly one hundred times, that of the black hole’s regular output. But back in February 2012, astronomers using the Chandra X-Ray Observatory detected the brightest flare ever observed from the central black hole, also known as Sagittarius A*. The flare, recorded 26,000 light years away, was 150 times brighter than the black hole’s normal luminosity. What causes these outbursts? Scientists aren’t sure. But Sagittarius A* doesn’t seem to be slowing down, even though as black holes age they should show a decrease in activity...

Since getting to know Chris Sigdell in 2010, sending to the label a promo copy of ”The Great Disintegrator”, and onward recognizing the release of his project b°tong ‎ through labels such as Attenuation Circuit, Greytone and Silken Tofu, we met up in the flesh 2016. Since then the label invited him to master latest releases from Ajna, Valanx and Dronny Darko and now releases his project b°tong’s two new albums ”Monastic” and ”The Long Journey”.
On ”The Long Journey” Chris Sigdell focuses on dark drones combined with ”meant-to-be” sound mishaps, making up a drowsy quagmire to a mixture of avantgarde experimental darkness.

Don’t listen properly, behave inaccurate. Don’t be obnoxious, be quiet and feel the concrete.
