"Ottoman black"
Year:  2010
Country:  US
Artist:  Jason Crumer
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  34 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:        Ambient         Noise


























"Ottoman Black" is a masterful damn record, an album of midnight drones and true noise, a definitive statement that makes most other noise records of this ilk seem immature, if not outright stillborn. From cover’ s photography , presenting mundane situation with an air of isolated, hysterical desperation, to the track titles, presented in the style of an academic outline (I.,II.,a.,b.,etc.) this is a formally conceived and meticulously crafted 35 minutes, leaving nothing untitled or untidy. Ottoman Black is the very highest percentile of achievement, the top one percent of noise albums that come out in 2008. It is not something to nod off to, or put on while washing dishes, but a 35- minute symphony of dread, distress, and yes, betrayal. At the same time, the sheer depth of technological achievement (great sound/mastering/technical know/how) make it an engaging listen, and will assuredly continue to give up new information with multiple listens.

ALUMINUM NOISE
"Totally fucking lost"
Year:  2001
Country:  US
City:  Oakland, California
Artist:  Jason Crumer
Label:  Sacred Sound Noise
Format:  CD
Edition:  50 copies
Tracks:  5
Time:  74 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:        Noise        Ambient






















From 2000 to 2003 ALUMINUM NOISE made ten albums and after, each musician continued his musical experience by separates lands. ALUMINUM NOISE have made an impression of their own, with numerous releases in Europe, Japan and stateside. This project of Jason Crumer and Nathan Hobbs create some of the most unique and varied experimental music to be found. Aluminum Noise is a two-headed monster. One minute they're blasting your speakers with bent and broken noise, the next they're flooding you with drifting, melodic ambience. Enormous, huge and hyper long tracks where it happens from furious harsh noise to empty ambient, drone or ritual.
