S. Pakhomov had been inspired by another artist who had been experimenting with those noise walls and 8kbps Lobito encoding; I didn’t get the memo in what bitrate S. Pakhomov decided to experiment in to create this three hour long release named LO-Fi but it’s sounding pretty much around the 24kbps sound and feel; so cozy, so warm and muzzled in friendliness.
But it’s not just the sound encoding that makes this lengthy release so pretty and fine; of course it’s the audio creation itself!
A endless wonderful session of the finest sounding crackles on the planet. Think of nice noises like hearing the dust on a old vinyl record tickling the needle, or perhaps a sweet fireplace burning it’s wood for three hours in a slow but warm welcoming way; it’s a bit like that, but probably even nicer.
Can’t write a whole gigantic essay about it,but you would see that hearing it for three hours in a row is actually a very reasonable and doable option. S. Pakhomov simply managed to provide the right crackles in the right encoding that never seem to be able to become boring. It’s fascinating as even though it’s crackling crackles full stop, it’s so digestible that once you start you don’t want it to go away. It’s comparable to munching on the inside of a bag of crisps; once you pop, you won’t stop!
