SML023C w.x – . – The Best of w.x, Part III

FREE DOWNLOAD FROM:
Bandcamp

. is a 3 part series featuring the best material from w.x. Since 2007 Ian Witzel has been releasing music covering a varied selection of genres under the name w.x. He has since decided to retire that name and expand the horizons of his music. After 5 years and over 20 releases the time has come to lay w.x to rest. This compilation features an assortment of different styles and textures ranging from harsh experimental noise to the more ethereal ambient and drone.

Part III showcases the end result from years of experimentation. Unlike the harsh noise and disjointed electronics of the past, this release leans more toward the sublime and transcending ambient. Deep drones murmur underneath slowly dreaming melodies as a soundscape emerges, sending the listener to a driftless plateau where one can see all the beauty of the world. Most of these songs capture the meditative bloom of our minds and make us all glad we possess the power of hearing. Songs like “Far Away From the World” and “Orpheus” have a dazzling charm that opens up our eyes to beautiful sights never perceived before. There is also the flip side of the coin, with songs like “Frozen Kaleidoscope” and “Erosion Decay” presenting the darker aspects of life that still need to be embraced. This release also includes 3 never before released remixes all remixed by the artist.

This is final part of a 3 part series featuring the best music from w.x. The time has come to retire the name and move on to bigger and better things. Thank you all for listening and keep in touch for new sounds in the future.
