Lope - "Necros" (Sweden 2002)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: September 2003
This is a one man project by Victor Kvarnhall from Umea, Sweden. It is 6 tracks spread over 55 minutes. I have found virtually no information about the project but from the little I did find, it would appear the music was solely composed and recorded on the computer. It is very ambient and starts with the track "O'Riordan", which was probably recorded on a dark day in the winter! This is very drifting dreamy stuff with simple guitar lines that form beautiful melodies and are backed by equally dreamy, though sometimes freaky synths and some samples. Check it out and see what you think!
