Swedish musique concrÀte composer B.J. Nilsen (a.k.a. Hazard)’s live document will make you drop everything and stare into space. His sound is distant, alien and yet seductive enough to draw you outside your house to drift through the streets, following its trail for hours on end. This 39-minute set at Vienna’s Generator festival is a brilliant, watercolored symphony of murmuring drones, winds, thunderstorms, boat rickets and the odd bumblebee that reminds you that you’re still on earth. Nearly everything is kept in the same key and saunters in a soft tone without ever pissing in your ear with bursts of feedback. Live… proves that we should keep an eye on Nilsen.
