It's ambient but far from soothing, built on a foundation of electronically manipulated texture that recalls the sheets of guitar noise that allow certain black-metal bands to push beyond shreddingly fast and into something approximating white noise, with electronic blips that are less soothing than unsettling.

Hit the jump to enjoy.
