Old world vs New world

Hi everybody! Adding my name to the member's list has been a mind-expanding experiment. Now I'm from the old world, being old myself, and being a musician, I have this analytic way of listening to music, almost dissecting. Can't help it.  I know…See More

My review of "Anátēxis" CDr by Jarguna

Posted by Richard Gürtler on March 29, 2015 at 9:31am 0 Comments

Italian soundexplorer, photographer and ethnobotany adventurer Marco Billi aka Jarguna returns with his newest "Anátēxis" album self-released during January 2015. Recorded between 2013 and 2014 at his Sound Course Studio, the album comes with attractive jewel case design, which include except stunning photos also painted and signed tray.



"Anátēxis" journey reveals with 21-plus minutes long "Lithogenesis", which straightly dives into deeply mysterious subterranean realms, where echoed organic sounds amalgamate with ghostly rumbles and undulating dronescapes. Heavier dissonant layers slowly permeate through before metamorphosing into cascades of industrial-infused rhythm movements. These sonic elevations are soon joined by perplexing voice ventures with didgeridoo howls. Expanding, intensifying and climaxing, then around the middle part relievedly diminishing into quieter terrains, yet hauntingly flavored with assorted cavernous and primordial traceries. Wow, a very immersing exploration awaits here!!! Primal rumbles announce the next piece, "Compression", on which Jarguna is joined by Tucson based soundcarver Nathan Youngblood, who is mostly known for his "Asunder" debut CD released in 2007 on SteveRoach.com label. Although the overall mood of this composition is rather cacophonous, its soundpalette is richly organic and acoustically hallucinogenic. Don't know exactly who is responsible for what, maybe Nathan might control most of those primordial scrapings. In any case, according to the pictures of Sound Course Studio, Marco is equipped with lost of toys and Nathan's studio is the same story, I can confirm that personally as few jam sessions still deeply resonate. Dense circles of menacing clouds persistently hang above, at times stealing the center stage, but the listening…

Old world vs New world

Posted by Claude Charles on March 27, 2015 at 4:44pm 4 Comments

Hi everybody! Adding my name to the member's list has been a mind-expanding experiment. Now I'm from the old world, being old myself, and being a musician, I have this analytic way of listening to music, almost dissecting. Can't help it.  I know better (since E. Froese's death)  what influences you got from here, and that is quite different from mine (mainly progressive rock at the time). Does anyone want to discuss the differences between Europe & US, where you call any artpiece a "work", and talk about the distribution net as a "music industry"?
