Abel Odor X andarctica present 'cyan nori'
an ambient-fragrance collaboration
The bright opening tones of ‘cyan’ capture the juicy notes of tangerine and white peach that lead the scent. Field recordings from the pacific coast and shining bell tones reflect the sunlight as it sparks across the tops of the bright blue waves.
‘nori’ takes us under the water to capture the darker salt-sweet of the underlying nori base. Hydrophone recordings among fields of kelp combine with sustained, overlapping tones, to capture how the light streams down in long beams from the surface.
andarctica crafts flowing, persistent pieces that combine orchestral and electronic sounds with field recordings from their small studio in Amsterdam.
