Thinking back, Sporing Promenade might be the first real “nature drone” album I’ve listened to before.
Sporing Promenade is a generally quiet mix of long, drawn out themes built on the foundations of twitchy, digital forest sounds, some acoustic interruptions, and the occasional choral climax, where everything finally ties itself into some kind of true harmony.
It’s the aural equivalent to a walk in the woods on the property of some vaguely spiritual commune or the forested campgrounds after a big music festival. Every once in a while you’ll run into a little pocket of practicing freak-folkers in the middle of a ritual.
Most of the sounds feel organic, even the digital alterations, and some tracks are bordered by the noise of evening crickets, a means to bring the listener back to reality.

Not necessarily something you’d want to pop on the car stereo on the ride home from work, but there’s a lot of interesting content here, enough to warrant at least one freaky ride through the woods.
