Ubeboet - Praeter EP




Miguel A. Tolosa (Ubeboet) is a soundartist active since some years in the ambient/drone scene.
His personal production counts several releases in mp3 format, some CDr’s and periodic collaborations with other musicians of this area like Asher, Christopher McFall or Pablo Reche.
Furthermore, he runs CONV, a (net)label based on a large catalogue of online releases apart from a CD(-R) series.
Since its beginnings, the music of Miguel has been a bit out of traditional schemes, recurring to different solutions mixed with consolidated characters of the “ambient” genre.
So is for the use of field recordings, accidental noises or occasional voices, which give more complexity to his works and lead the listener to unexpected changes of theme.
"Praeter ep." makes concrete a further evolution of the project, offering a blend of these elements which lay on an obscure background.
The two tracks are less homogeneous and linear in structure than previous pieces, with an initial presence of droning tones followed by rumbling soundscapes (in the first) and hypnotic atmospheres, more persistent, combined with an ethereal voice (in the second).
Waiting for another full-length release...
