‘0x001’ is the 2016 release from Coarses. It’s a collection of ambient tracks that work just as well as stand alone pieces as they do as a whole. I stumbled upon this collection of drone goodness after seeing the trailer for the amazing short film ‘The Pond’ (link below). This is excellent music for writers of horror, thrillers, or any sort of dark fiction.
‘Open Field’ puts you in a trance right away with what sounds like the breathing of some fantastic machine. From the sound of it, its most likely a machine that eats people.
‘Worship’ creates an unsettling atmosphere, like you’ve just happened upon some ancient druidic ritual. Never a good thing.
‘Focus’ changes this up a bit with its catchy techno beat, and ‘Focus on Hands’ is the album’s best track. The finale is machine-like, bringing to mind The Terminator in his relentless quest to kill his intended target.
If you’re a fan of drone and ambient, this is definitely for you, and if you’re a fan of horror soundtracks, you should definitely check this out.
