A year after the pale but never anaemic “ White Clouds Drift On And On ” (Echospace, 2009), an album geared up to the placid “ Pop Ambient ”, the aloof Brock Van Wey (aka Bvdub) has announced a forthcoming record via Glacial Movements, a Rome-based label that claims to be interested in every single form of isolated and cold music. A standard of ambient, dub and techno on labels like Styrax, Meanwhile or Millions Of Moments, Van Wey walks again through the placid path in “The Art of Dying Alone”, a collection of six long frames of ambient wrapped in cotton wool recorded at his new residence in Shaoxing, China, that will be released through Glacial half way through July.
