Michael Oster - "Fluid"
(CD - 2000)

You won't believe what you're hearing.

Years before he came up with "the Difficult Listening Channel" 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.

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!
