More Info

Nach der schnen IDIOSCAPES-Compilation die zweite Verffentlichung fr das belgische Label aus Gent. PHIL MAGGI ist Mitglied diverser Bands (z.B. ULTRAPHALLUS) und legt nach zwei CDRs seine erste "fabrikgepresste" CD vor. Seine subtilen wie therischen Drones werden mit field recordings aus Zagreb angereichert (Akkordeon-Folk eines Strassenmusikers, Sounds in einer Kirche), immer wieder sind im weiteren Verlauf effektierte Echo-Gitarren oder Rckwarts-Harmonien eingesetzt, die dem ganzen einen vertrumt-sehnschtigen Anstrich geben... sehr schn, to discover !

"Blue Fields in Paramount is a very personal and fascinating opus, a beautiful introduction to the style of this talented artist, that could be qualified as 'dark psychedelia for daydream believers'. It has been mastered by James Plotkin (Khlyst, Khanate, Old, Phantom) and is out now as a limited to 300 copies ekopack release with a fantastic artwork by czech artist Jan Karpisek." [label info]

"The album contains a 39 minutes track that is formed by totally different mini suites made with loops, fields recordings (he did his sessions in a church and in the streets of Zagreb) and sampled contemporary classical music. The track starts with a dark ambient drone mood with tones inserts and follows with Zagreb sounds mixed with backward classical music. Suddenly anxious atmospheres take a hold thanks to synth sounds coupled with an orchestration of sampled/treated breaths. The tracks changes skins different times and each one is renewing like a phoenix born from its ashes and Phil succeeds into keeping the listener's attention high thanks to interesting sounds, light melodies and tension. I liked it..."" [Maurizio Pustianaz, CHAIN D.L.K.]
