Rafael Toral ‘Aeriola Frequency’ (Black Truffle)

Portuguese producer/composer Rafael Toral has built the delicately reverberating soundscapes of ‘Aeriola Frequency’ by manipulating electronic feedback loops and conjuring up stretched resonances like a sorcerer who proves his powers by making a church bell ring in slow motion and then in complete reverse. Originally available in 1998, the album consists of several elongated pieces – ‘Cyclorama Lift 2’, ‘Cyclorama Lift 4’ and the separately released ‘Cyclorama Lift 3’ – all of which glisten like distant glass reflecting light back across a desert.
