N.N.N. Cook - Syncretic Offering
Close/Far Recordings is a tape label out of St. Louis run by Nathan Cook. This is his own most recent release on the label, emphasizing the label's focus on sound art, ambient, experimental, dance, and electronic music. A wonderful album that is befitting of its title. 'Syncretic' means 1: the combination of different forms of belief or practice and 2: the fusion of two or more originally different inflectional forms. The music here exercises both sides of the definition.
