Label: Field RIng Records
Slot Canyons is an experimental ambient electronic project from Ryan Blankley, producer and multi-instrumentalist with a knack for making truly otherworldly sounds from minimal resources. Titled Undistorted, his newest record combines elements of field recordings, fragmented textures of synth drones and lush ambient soundscapes as well as glitchy guitar work. By layering these blankets of aural bliss on top of each other, their synthesis creates a planet all to its own, an immersive and unique experience from beginning to end.
Here’s where it gets even more interesting. On Slot Canyons’ Bandcamp page, there’s a note saying these are only available to order in Wuhan, China. On top of that, you’re required to message the artists before purchasing. Color me intrigued. Listen to the album below and do what you will. I’ve reached out to Ryan and asked for more info, so we’ll see…
