I don’t follow the CD-R-MP3 $cene — not that there is anything wrong with that™ — it’s just that I know that there is plenty for me to listen to in the Free scene. However, I do enjoy it when these two musical scenes cross paths as they do with the release of Cryptic Scenery‘s Low Battery (test tube). Cryptic Scenery, led by Christian H. Sötemann, have released this incredibly beautiful ambient netpla with Sötemann (guitar, electronics and other sounds) and Thomas Pertzel (saxophone, percussion and other sounds). In my first listen of Low Battery, the delicate allure of Adrift (mp3) was simply too intoxicating, and then track after track, there was this enchanting radiance, each track equally stirring. Consider me drunk on Cryptic Scenery’s Low Battery.
