A literal take on the concept of industrial music

These days, industrial music is made with heavy guitars, aggressive-sounding synthesizers, and big beats. But in its earliest forms back in the 1940s and 50s–then known as musique concrete–it was made using sounds found in the real world.

Gourski & Appel have gone back to those days to create a seven-and-a-half minute piece made from nothing but industrial sounds. It’s not the most relaxing thing, but it’s an interesting exercise in working with sonic landscapes. (Via )
