Phoenix York – Godspeed Phuong
Godspeed Phuong consists of 8 pieces created in the seclusion of his studio located in the eastern townships of Quebec, Canada. The songs range from moody atmospherics, not far from post-rock at times to a space set between ambient and proto-orchestral, they reflect more the urban angst or a satellite in perdition than the countryside settings in which the songs were crafted. The primary instrumentation here is a guitar, a modular synth, a sampler and an array of found sounds. The music itself could be called ambient “with an edge”.
