Artist: Tom Hall
Title: Fervor
Format: Download Only (MP3 + Lossless)
Label: Elli Records
Tom Hall is an AV artist. The 2-track release Fervor comes with an accompanying Windows & Mac app to compliment the sound, but I’m reviewing the audio as a standalone work.

This is a set of two gentle and meandering pieces in which ambling synthesizer lines drift over thick, slow and stretched ambiences. In “As We Go To Fight Giants”, the hardware wave synthesis is initially fairly sedate, but with a sawtoothed edge to the tone, and as it progresses it gets a little more harsh and bass-heavy, perhaps as we meet the titular giants.

In “Only The Hunted Know”, there’s a lighter melodic tone with quasi-piano notes like random raindrops over a drone which, again, evolves in harshness and flatulence as it progresses- although this time round there’s a more distinct drop.
