Sleepwalkers in a Cold Circus is the second album from Belgian sound artist Koenraad Ecker. These nine electro-acoustic tracks are dark and gloomy, yet filled with wonder and curiosity.

Heavy bass frequencies with throbbing subharmonics flow like dreams under sharply-focused field recordings and processed electronic noises. The amplified micro-acoustics mix and mingle with the macro, both intimate and intense. Some of the sounds are easy to identify: bowed strings and ringing bells. Others seem familiar but are somehow hard to place. Matches being lit? Sonar pings? Thunder storms?
