More Info

Collaboration von JOHN GORE (KIRCHENKAMPF), STEVE HALL (YEN POX-Hlfte und VEIL OF SECRECY) und C. REIDER (auch solo aktiv), 7 Stcke zwischen elektronischem dark ambient, minimaler Elektronik mit bedrohlichen / fremdartigen Untertnen, und puren backwards-drone-Sphren. Die Stimmung ndert sich mit jedem der sieben Stcke, sehr gut ! Handpainted coversleeves...

It seems to me that Cohort Records is becoming more and more active these days, and so are the musical activities of their boss, John Gore, aka Kirchenkampf, aka The Oratory Of Divine Love and aka >wirewall<. Here he teams up with Steve Hall, aka Yen Pox and aka Veil Of Secrecy and the more unknown C. Reider, who runs the Vuzh Music label. All three delivered sound material for this release, which was then 'arranged, effected and mixed' by John Gore. He calls this 'psychedelic ambient', which is an appropriate tag. 'Violent Drone' might also be appropriate, as in all seven tracks drones of whatever nature (radio static, analogue synth and perhaps even field recordings) play an important role, but a likewise important role is played by all the applied effects that Gore adds to this. This gives this drone music a top heavy character, sounds bursting in and out everywhere, from the depths of the earth and stardust from the sky. A sizzling mix of static sounds that never sounds static. Everything seems to be moving around all the time, with small changes of color and texture, like a Yves Klein painting or a Steve Reich piano piece, ever so apparent in 'I Hear Voices'. Powerful drone music, along the lines of Troum, but more musical... by which ever definition music of course. [FdW / Vital Weekly]
