This epic album sonically documents one of the coldest winters in decade and reflects upon the strange annual festival which exploits a frozen old man called Frozen Dead Guy Days. The music is edgy ambient noise and drones combined with field recordings of the artists walking on the frozen river and reservoir. It features bios+a+ic's lush effects-laden trumpet, time stretched looping, and minimal sound textures. These elements are combined with Tanker's warping analog synthesizer, pulsing rhythms, and glitched blips. froZen is a powerful and unique musical statement which takes the listener to a strange and beautiful world which exists in either outer space or inner Earth. This release was the final recording made by mountain man and artist, Tanker, as he left the world the following summer. The album ends with his voice speaking over his synth. May he rest in peace.
