Noise Level

This Liquid Sky

By Romina WendellLiquid Sky's promo material asks, "what is music but organized noise?," and it is the thin divide between the two that sampler/keyboardist Ed Matthews and synth player Rick Walton explore as the duo behind Noise Level. The Liquid Sky unfolds as a collection of scene-setting, mostly ambient miniatures. Gaseous synths, low hums, obscure B-movie clips and the occasional beat barrage puncture cathedral atmospherics and mostly fluid sequences. Keeping the pace of a film score though, The Liquid Sky is bolder than background music and it plays out as a study in contrasts between stillness and controlled frenzy, expanding the liminal space between them.
