Kwook – Skywave
CD, Blue Oasis/DataObscura, 2008


Kwook is an ambient project of the Australian musician Simon Bennett. Where his previous album UFO was quite outer-space themed, Bennett’s second album “Skywave” is a musical survey of shortwave radio.

Sonically, a varied array of distorted signals are very nicely matches with sequenced parts and minimal, flowing melodic structures and occasional rhythms.
E.g. “Sunspots” feels like a warm blanket with it’s softly glowing, positive approach as does the three part 22-minute title track, found at the closing of the album.

Overall, there’s this mellow, dreamy, hypnotizing effect embedded in all twelve sonic ambient excursions, all delicately shaped and sculptured. I
n its own right, it’s a kind of cleverly composed chill-out ambient with a great high-quality sound.

So all who love spacious ambient music, make sure to check this one out.
The album is available as pressed cd and as a digital download.
