I spent a lot of time wondering to myself and to Google just what the hell an “ouddan” is. A character from some online RPG? An anime thing? Or just some amazing word that Dylan McConnell came up with to accompany this new track from his project, Department of Harmonic Integrity.
It almost works as an onomatopoeic way of describing the opening synth line that slowly denatures over the course of this almost 10 minute track. When the echoes of that little loop take over for the last six minutes, it’s haunting enough to give you the goddamn night terrors.
