More Info

JOE COLLEY alias CRAWL UNIT bewegt sich hier auf einem einzigen Stück in verschiedenen Spannungsbögen – rauschige Drones schwellen langsam an und zerfallen obertonig wieder zu akustischem Staub. Ähnlich wie auf der ERS 12“ geht es überwiegend ruhig und schwelend zu, nur das Finale ist geräuschhaft-konkreter... zwischen innerer Spannung und Erschlaffen, als wären verschiedene Körperzustände in SOUND transformiert worden. Unsere wärmste Empfehlung!

“Anthem is a single piece, mixed "by hand" (without computers), using both acoustic and electronic sound sources as its basic material. The piece, just under 19 minutes in length, moves forward on a similar path Colley has been following with his other projects, but not without its own surprises. Drones, noise and more drones. Composed as a series of 'scenes' with an undeniably acute attention to detail, the piece operates on its own logic. Beginning with quiet drones, the hum of static, amplified white noise, the final 'scene' presents a jolting collection of noises and abrasive sounds. It's a compelling work, and one that keeps you guessing, keeps you interested, even after you've listened to its cycle more than a few times. Nice work.“ [Richard di Santo, Incursion]
