AIR celebrates the second CD release and digital drop by MDC in a projected tetralogy of ambient and synthesized soundscapes based on the classical elements: water, air, earth and fire. Incorporating twenty-five years of field recordings from all over the world, “AIR” also includes non-real-time granular synthesis of these recordings and real-time processing of stringed instruments: guitar, bass and moon-harp.
