Michael Oster - "Fluid"
(CD - 2000)
You won't believe what you're hearing.
Years before he came up with "" podcast, he created "Fluid". For this, his first CD-length music release, Michael Oster took a 14 second sound clip and sculpted it into 54 minutes of epic, evolving ambiences and flowing soundscapes. Walk along some Las Vegas hotels on the strip while listening to Fluid and just let the experience overtake you.
Fluid begins with simple droplets of water - then effortlessly moves you into a lush new sonic world. Grab your headphones and enjoy the all inclusive trip.
Experimental, risk-taking, cutting edge. If you like the music of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, John Cage and Boards of Canada, you'll love Fluid!
