A befriended elk and wolf embark on an eerie journey through their moonlit forest, which slowly but steadily starts to reformat itself around them. Staying closely together, the two wander through their digitizing habitat, forced to push forward into the night, to the edge of the woods, to the safety of the yellow fields.

"Elk Ember" is a DIY collage of loops with variations on guitar, melodica, vocal and environmental recordings. Apart from some prefabricated kicks, all sounds are acoustically recorded. No synthesizers or virtual instruments were used. This is the unmastered full version, based on and tribute to Andy Kehoe's painting "Together at the Treshold".

(Not in any way do we claim or own rights to Kehoe's depicted artwork, the field recordings or the narration.)

"N.O. is the power to mentally call other objects and energies through lightyears of space. It calls upon both sides of the brain's thought process to open channels through multiple dimensions to instantaneously pull things through. [...] The N.O. of Atomsk, (アトムスク, Atomusuku) is great enough to steal entire solar systems."
