Michael Oster - "dissipate"
It's murky. It's dark. It's ambient. "dissipate" continues in the direction of Michael Oster's more recent "Difficult Listening Channel" podcasts with evolving sonic backdrop that seduces you into a modified state of mind.
Michael Oster creates a surreal soundscape that conjures up moving images, psychedelic sweeping colors, and a touch of sci-fi on his latest CD "dissipate". It's a world of creativity, synthesizer manipulation, engineering skills, mental cinema, and luck.
Play it softly and its ambience will ease you into another world. Bring up the volume and it shakes your house with its intense low frequencies and oscillator interaction. Sometimes murky, then soothing, peppered with mild static and rumbles, "dissipate" conjures up new variations of sounds with each listen.
Recorded and mastered by:
1 take. No edits, no overdubs. A live 'in the studio' performance.
Headphone listening is highly recommended. Otherwise use a good stereo system with a subwoofer or decent bass reproduction. There are frequencies on this CD that can not be represented accurately on cheap computer speakers or crappy systems.
Equipment (ab)used included Moog Voyager RME, Line 6 Echo Pro, Boss DD-6, DOD DFX-9, Pro Tools v. 6.9.2 for recording and mastering only.

"dissipate" is Out of Print :-(
The Story Behind My CDs
Personality, character, style, emotion and more go in before a CD ever comes out. There's a method to this madness.
