Mister Vapor – It Came From Vapor

Mister Vapor is another project of prolific ambient artist Thomas Park, and one of his albums, “It Came From Vapor”, released on Dark Winter label, is now under discussion. The opening track “Psychic Residue”, a misty, mantra-like drone, may narrate about some parapsychological phenomenon, if thinking over the title – some remains of a consciousness, a ghost or a phantom of previously existed breather. The next “Sad Jungle”, a piece, combining field recordings, extended humming and ethnic drums, stands out against a background of the other tracks, by its rhythmic nature. Then comes ringing and enveloping “Mystical Fire”, probably made of some bell sounds. “Cold Vapor” is a set of gentle, thick drones, the atmosphere of which tends to be comfort and pleasant, whereas the previous track is mainly of worried mood. “Thought Tones Volume One-Part Four” is a remix, made by Thomas Park, or, maybe, a collaboration with Kit Watkins, again representing a drone nature of the album. “Incident 9” seemed to me a complex of processed field recordings and crackling layer of sound, producing some kind of ominous impression. As
for the concluding “One Resolution”, it embodies the “happy end” of the album, with positive, major chords and streamlined music forms. So, find out, what came from Vapor with Thomas Park’s ambiences.
