Entente Cordiale - 1904

Modisti

[ Entente Cordiale - 1904 CDR ]

A collective approach to the development of extended drone textures created by means of electric guitars. Featuring a dense flow of pulsating, transparent veils, the superimposition of overtones and processed fabrics creates a complex dome of continuous noise. The vault's nerves become increasingly close, layers getting thicker, their continuous character contributing to add to the density of the whole although the careful process of addition unfolds according to a calculated plan. The immediate reminiscences of the materials –such as harshness and protest- are here counterbalanced by the extreme subtlety with which the sounds are handled. More importantly, they subtly hint at the fragility beneath the complex veil of abstract noise, which simultaneously states an almost trance-like recurrence of rhythmic statements of collective celebration/cry.

    This single-track, 23 minute disc contains some excellent, gluey, guitar-based improvised drones that sort of bridge the gap between Earth 2 and the celestial sludgy krautrock of SKULLFLOWER's Orange Canyon Mind, with thick rumbling feedback dripping slowly over swells of repetitious chords...

    Neither Painting Nor Sculpture

    (Joe+N - Neither Painting Nor Sculpture) Vast textural surfaces of abstract (sonic) materials unfurl upon large format canvases. Concerned with continuity and dimension, the actual sound sources have a secondary relevance, thus simply featuring a rusty red distorted electric...
