Listening to WhiteOut reminds me of when I was a young boy listening to the 2001 OST and feeling really spaced out and weird but really enjoying it. Same with that "The Planets" record my mum had (imagine if I had found her John Cage records!).

On this cd White Out is Lin Culbertson, Tom Surgal, Jim O'Rourke and William Winant. These four make a right old racket on here too. Some of the noisier bits can sound alsmost like Einsturzende if they were more of a improv group. It also recalled that Strønen/Storløkken cd on rune grammofon (and Supersilent too I suppose, just not as melodic).

If you are willing to emerse yourself in this record then I'm sure it will grow on you like it did on me.
