Seoul label Helicopter Records has been releasing local experimental music on tape for some years now. One of their most recent tapes is Saltlake FM by Hosoo. Hosoo, or 호수, means ‘lake’ and ‘room number’ in Korean and is a duo creating ambient on the border of sound art. Inspired by the likes of Brian Eno, Terry Riley and Haruomi Hosono as well as Korean tradition, they’ve now made two albums. Saltlake FM came out in November and feels like a set of transmissions from specific environments (from Saltlake to Landau). The last track covers the entire B-side and is a longer version of one of the tracks from their 2019 album.
