79255 - Pain/tings - Przemyslaw Rudz

The opener is an abstract melange of civilisation noises. This sombre
introduction kind of reminded me of newer Depeche Mode music, so I put
my ear nearer to the speaker - the next DM-association was the title
of the CD itself, Pain/tings: Are we dealing here with "pain and
suffering in various tempos", as it said on Playing The Angel by
Martin Gore & Co.? This intro is already four minutes long, in just a
second there might appear a warmer note, a familiar harmony... And
still we are drifting forwards in complete darkness. Przemyslaw Rudz'
scores here big points, in my opinion - this is really a fascinating
opening theme.
And there it goes, at about the 5. minute mark, a majestic chord a'la
Klaus Schulze's winter landscapes! This icy impression is still quite
murky and sombre, but now it is rather a Berlin "pre-ambient"
impression than an abstract click-ambient sculpture. Rudz' keeps on
painting his sombre icy mirages almost 25 minutes long - this moving
piece of music is a reminder of the electronic past and a "brave new
sequence" at the same time. The second track has a similar atmosphere
from the very beginning; however, here the ice surfaces seem to begin
to break down, so that one can see the dim outlines of the composition
to a greater extent than in the case of the former track. Still, the
music lurks in shades of lead-grey clouds passing over the sad skies.
At about the 5' mark one could almost see the first signs of azure
blue presence, nevertheless the dangerous metallic wind is howling
every now and then somewhere near the listener. Until the very end of
the track there will be no beats nor sequences at all, but there still
will be yet even more room to fit in...
Track three is an interlude of a kind; Rudz' sketches here a quite
outlined melody, but still there is no sun at all to be seen - a
polished ice button, at the very most... The amazing composition #4 is
bathed in black liquid tones as if there suddenly was sound to the
darkest pain/tings by El Greco. It's the most rhythmic movement so
far, but, needless to say, the pace is quite slow and the rhythm
patterns are tracked-down, thoughtful, introvert. What a wonderful
mood - reminds me a lot of Wolfram Spyra's Hush Hour!
The fifth impression is yet another short interlude; on the one hand
we have pretty liquid chord structures here, and there is at long last
a ray of sunlight to be seen, on the other hand the drops of abstract
sequential line are freezing instantly and lead our attention away
from the more optimistic voices...
The final track with its 17 minutes is a moving electronic dream, with
subtle solos in the old style once in a while... but in general there
is once more a great amount of darkness and abstract iciness to it.
Then something unexpected happens. At about the tenth-minute mark
there appears a quick-paced sequence, and all the icebergs burst at
last with loud thugs and crashes. With the 12. minute the drums join
in, and then a whole bunch of Tangerine Dream -like colours explodes
and lights up the white horizon with a liquid red afterglow. That's
what I call a powerful coda of a moving record! And 75 minutes have
already passed? Good to have this CD at one's disposal, so that one
can explore the regions Klaus Schulze told us about in 1977 over and
over, which I highly recommend.

25325 - Southeast 225 - NORYANI

It's the second time that the Noryani project. The music presented
here sounds very fresh - it is a unique combination of traditional
electronica, melodious chill-out and polidimensional ambience with a
slight touch of film- and classical music to it. Southeast 225 reminds
me of a differentiated photo-album full of well-tempered, mysterious
electronic postcards. The opening track is a nostalgic puzzle of moods
a'la Vangelis' Antarctica and Isan's Meet Next Life: a really good
mixture of traditional and daring electronica. The second piece of
music enables us to imagine a collaboration between Daniel Pemberton
and Edgar Froese; still let's not forget that it's just a description
of the mood of a track which was composed and produced by some other
artist, not that famous yet, but apparently as talented as the two
just mentioned. The third track is my favourite one so far - it's
impossible not to be fond of this enthralling mix of haunting drums at
mid-pace with hypnotic chords! Shall I give this association a clear
shape and name two artists, who could have conceived such a mood had
they wanted to work together? I say: Biosphere and Fever Ray! But once
more, it's Noryani who's responsible for this fascinating mood. The
fourth track reminds me of Joseph Turner's sea-paintings, almost
invisible through the delicate haze of green, yellowish or azure-blue
accents. This piece of music is truly magical, it allows great
melancholy and high hopes to intermingle.
The fifth composition is Noryani's idea of a synthesis between
rhythm-oriented sequential electronica and the sombre face of el-pop.
It's exactly how the dream of Kraftwerk's showroom dummies could
sound. The sixth impression has much in common with newer Mike
Oldfield's music, especially with the nostalgic soundscapes from the
double album Light / Shade - mostly because of this very specifically
sounding piano, I think. There is also this very vastness and
association freedom accompanying the music - sultry music, seductive
music. There is so much room under this coffee-coloured sky and all
its piano-sound stars...
The seventh track is once more an impressing mixture of well sounding
drums as if taken from some odd, long-forgotten Eskimo fairytale and
vibrating, wintermood electronics with a slight touch of specific
nostalgia to it. Both tracks #8 and #9 could function just great as
film soundtracks. There is enough space here to have any association
and any colour we like. It's like seeing the music itself, we can see
its movements, we do not only hear all these harmonic soundscapes, we
can see and touch them. It?s this very kind of music one should enjoy
in complete darkness, without being interrupted. The tenth tale is
about the struggle between two different moods - doubt and bravery,
melancholy and open-mindedness, the beauty of the piano and the
harshness of the other instruments.
The final impression is a beautiful superior comment to a forgotten
celtic legend, a soundscape illustrating blackened drawings suddenly
found in recurring green waves of grass at dawn. How can one build
such fantastic electronic castles? Even after hours of repeated
listening we won't be able to answer that question... but we will be
able to dream new electronic dreams hour for hour - it's worth it!

57079 - Grassow, Mathias - Wisdom Of Fate

June 2012 was definitely a very busy month for both, German drone
master Mathias Grassow and Swedish ambitious label gterma, who have
released three new titles. I was focusing on "Dämmerung" some months
ago, now it's time to deeply immerse into "Wisdom Of Fate" double
album, inspired by the Norse mythology as continuing path of aural
alchemy explored on "Alchemystery" double album. This first CD is
entitled as "Alchemy Suite Part III: The Spring Of Mímir" with seven
tracks while the second CD is "Alchemy Suite Part IV: The Well Of
Urðr" featuring three longer compositions. The journey begins with
"Out Of Time And Mind", a composition sculpted with rather subtly
gliding drones blended with slower tribal beats to capture magically
aerial and hypnotic mood, which precisely portrays the track title.
"Across The Ífingr" is monotonously flowing drone with distant,
humming percussive elements. Sharper tribals take the lead on
"Knowledge of the Hrím þursar", while tranquilly mesmerizing drifts
are hovering above. "The Arcanum Of Jötunheimr" dives straightly into
immense abyssal realms, flavored with ghostly dissonances and
spellbindingly hypnotic beats. Wow, I am deeply immersed by this,
nearly 18 minutes long, richly dramatic subterranean odyssey!!!
"Standing Amidst Withering Rocks" quickly returns to more static,
mysteriously flavored freezing panoramas. "Gazing Deep into a Void of
Eons" is another longer composition, clocking to 17 and half minutes
and storming with repetitive and colossal tribal beats along with
cascading and expanding dronewalls. The return of the drone king at
his most monumental and shamanistic!!! The final piece of "Alchemy
Suite Part III: The Spring Of Mímir" entitled "Clarity Of Mind"
promptly relieves with beautifully sublime soundscape enriched by sky
sailing choirs and serenely tinkling bells. Magically mesmerizing medicine!!!
"Alchemy Suite Part IV: The Well of Urðr" unveils with "That Which Has
Already Been", a 28 and half minutes long dronescape, massively
drifting into immense Nordic highlands gathered by dark clouds and
painting truly spectacular sceneries, ranging from more absorbing
monstrous and ever-changing dronezones to more magnificent and rich
tribal cascades. Hugely adventurous and immersing all-inclusive sonic
bliss, definitely one of the highlights!!! The next piece, "On Fragile
Wings Once More Arisen" , is again wrapped by deep drone blankets, but
gentle tribal grooves step to the fore here and there. Carsten Agthe
adds his percussion magics on this composition, which showcases a
harmonious synergy and balance between acoustics and drone expansions.
More please!!! The conclusion is provided by "Twisted By The Hand Of
Fate", nearly 30 minutes long piece, gliding with ever-changing and
increasing grace over forested misty areas with fabulous reflections,
with occasional percussive rhyth mic ingredients thrown in to capture
a fully mesmerizing effect. Another enormously thrilling and
intriguing scenario!!!
"Wisdom Of Fate" is again stunningly portrayed by 16-page booklet.
Another big one from Mathias Grassow, the iconic German drone
purveyor!!! And a big one from gterma too, bravo Johan!!!
