The staff at A Closer Listen selected this year’s best soundtracks for videogames, and was really happy to see 0°N 0°W ‘s on the list, thanks for the lovely article David!!
“In the past years, there have been quite a few experimental games that directly link place to sound (like Proteus). Colorfiction’s latest contribution is perhaps one of the genre’s best. 0°N 0°W presents listeners with a system of ambient music that privileges the continuity of sound across imaginary space – its refusal of linearity is also a refusal of layering, perhaps the landmark of ambient ever since its beginnings, simply because the system requires constant input.
As a soundtrack, this album works towards ambiguity and an uncertainty that emerges from there being simultaneously too little and too much to focus upon. And yet, this is its only constant, a systematic approach that suggests infinite branching paths within a finite field of action, our attentions exerted not in terms of depth but of width, the scientific names of its tracks a cypher for the limitlessness of experience. “ - David Murrieta Flores , A Closer Listen.
