Various Artists - Fahrenheit Project part 3

Band/artist - Various
Genre(s) - Psychedelic ambient
Origin - Various
Album - Fahrenheit Project, part 3
Year of release - 2002

The Fahrenheit Project is a series of compilations - seven in total, of which six have been released so far - released by the ambient, dub and psytrance label Ultimae records. A large and recurring role on all of the Fahrenheit comps is reserved for my triarchy of favourite ambient artists: Solar Fields, Aes Dana and Carbon Based Lifeforms, who most usually chip in with a song or two each. With music like this it's hardly possible or rewarding to discuss the tracks separately: it's simply not song-based music, rather it's the totality of the experience that counts. Lay back, smoke 'em if you got 'em and enjoy a sonic dreamworld full of wonder, mysticism and calmly whirling phosphorescent vapours! Oh yes.

  2. Aes Dana - Undertow

  1. So how does it flow as an album? I mean, since it isn't produced as a unit?
    Anyway, I'm glad you posted this, I think it's just what I needed.

  2. The entire series has been compiled by one Mahiane and he knows what he's doing, in fact there seems to be a theme behind every comp the label releases but I have no idea what or how this is expressed. In any case you'll find that you'll hardly notice the one song ending and the next one beginnng.

  3. Also I believe the artists involged generally create or remix tracks specifically for the comps, it's not usually tracks lifted off of full-lenghts.

  4. Awesome. I like music that seems to come from a close-knit community like that.
