Experimental to the extreme, Oren Ambarchiís latest foray into the world of lush soundscapes is the four-track offering TRISTE. Minimal in its approach yet broad in its uncannily eerie vibe, this Australian-bred guitaristís unconventional style and abstract method of playing is definitely something for the music lover far removed from any popular music base, as the sounds which emanate from Ambarchiís guitar are unlike any tone youíd expect the instrument to make without massive manipulation from pedals and noise gates. Nonetheless, TRISTE is an intriguing album for those that tend to flock a little further out from the left of center side of the music spectrum.
