"field recordings & objects composed by Socrates Martinis, 2009. title refers to the same painting by Renй Magritte, 1937. on gorgeous coloured vinyl." [label info]


"The same person who is working as Nixilx.nijilx, Blanco Estira Nuestro and Helice Peid is working as Socrates Martins and for his 7" he took the title of a painting by Rene Margritte from 1937. On these pieces he plays 'field recordings and objects', but all of this highly obscured through extremely lo-fi transformations. It seems like captured on a cassette (or perhaps a whole bunch of cassettes), which add a low resolution to the material. It moves low over the surface of sound and is truly obscure record, but also a captivating one, I think. Maybe because one doesn't have a clue what's going on here, it leaves lots of space to contemplate about that. A record that poses more questions then the answer it gives. Which I guess if you call yourself Socrates Martins is the whole idea. Beautiful obscurity." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
