Following Voile au Vent and Fortune de Mer, Ipnopedion (sleeping field) is Timo van Luijk & Frederik Croene’s third LP, the first they present live. It is based on a found soundtrack of a hypnotized Italian soldier, muttering about being kidnapped by extraterrestrials. The tempo and tone of his speech is slow and beseeching – nearly musical. Croene and Van Luijk each separately dubbed the recording, without knowing what was being said. The two semi-synchronized recordings are spatialized live, as a setting for Croene’s piano and Van Luijks subtle processing of effects.
