More Info

"CD version of the 2013 LP edited on PAN. New mastering + bonus tracks. Mohammad is a chamber music trio consisting of Coti K (contrabass), Ilios (oscillators) and Nikos Veliotis (cello). Based in Greece, Mohammad make long form work drone works that explore the lower end of the frequency spectrum whilst retaining an intense emotional capacity. The results are monumental slow moving physical blocks of sound, both daunting and musical. The sheer weight of these recordings is impressive, the interplay of the musicians and instruments staggering, this end result being an album rich with immense harmonious abstraction which highlights years of dedication to their unique path. Following on from their previous releases (the highly regarded 'Roto Vildblomma' CD and the 'Spiriti' 3LP box, both on Antifrost) 'Som Sakrifis' follows the trio through three tracks of deep space experimentation where the acoustic and electronic blend together as a monumental whole. Listening to 'Som Sakrifis' takes the listener on an expansive journey through the netherworld of the low range whilst retaining distinct traces of musicality. The time and space in these works have a logic more akin to that of Hungarian filmmaker Bela Tarr than any contemporary music references. Monumental monochromatic movement is the order of the day. Sit back, strap in and let these fine explorers take you way out into the nether world."
