Man Meets Bear - Huronian Cadence [Cassette]
Huronian Cadence is a dynamic exploration of the spirit and mythology of the Great Lakes and southwest Ontario peninsula, featuring sampled drum recordings from Berlin-based David Dunnett (Hypnodrone Ensemble), and drone from Colorado-based electronic artist, Experimental Housewife. Huronian Cadence was mixed and mastered by Soren Brothers and Todd Macdonald (Silver Pools, the Winks).
From Weird Canada and the acousitc water dance of Trevor Angst:
The photo of collaborating artist Experimental Housewife standing in Lake Huron is reminiscent to Man Meets Bear’s cover art. Songwriter Soren Brothers wears his art on his sleeve, bridging his composition with his dedicated hours to limnology with visual transparency.
Huronian Cadence is an ethereal voice resting on nylon string. Soft textures of Latin and classical folk invoke images of a crash test dummy awaiting the ravage of a jersey barrier of heavy modulation. “Go Wild” is particular with cartoonish wails, becoming scratchier and alluring with high gain vocals. Other tracks feature a gated and compressed percussion, adding a closed dimension to the roofless, ambient siren call of Soren Brothers from across the lake.
