More Info

An abandoned silence
Dreams of drifting, living a fateful solitude

Wrapped around a grey and foaming voice
Reaping impulse and mass like a forgotten beast
Lost to countless days and nights
Rocks and soil, sand and stars
In the sadness of being
Standing apart

Remember the rising flame from time long ago
A sound that shook deeply from the bottom of a boiling ocean
One voice of Mother Magma
Formless lava fashioned a primeval landscape
Ash, smoke and seething seas
A red-hot avalanche cascades endlessly

The Awakened Voice
Predestined from beyond the FEARCENESS

[from the press release]


"By now, this is the fourth release by Oragnum Electronics. Can we call this an off-shoot to Organum, David Jackman's long-running project? Maybe he regards this as a wholly separate project? Hard to say, as always, Jackman's work is one clouded mystery. Until the day he opens up and 'explains' what his work is all about, if anything (of course), then we don't know. As Organum Electronics, Jackman returns to his earliest days as Oragnum, playing noise music. In the first few minutes of 'Fearceness', I believed to recognize some of the first LP, 'In Extremis', but now 'processed' through modular electronics. I am guessing here. When it comes to information, Organum never
provides much information (well, none, to be honest, because, as always, Organum's covers contains four identical text blocks; I always think of Andy Warhol), so there is little to know about how he works these days (well, any days). Organum in noise modus doesn't mean Organum in a harsh noise setting. His music is loud, like a metallic rumble, stuck in an endless groove (no rhythm) of continuously processed sounds. Think of this music as if one is locked inside the motor of an aeroplane. Curiously enough, now and then, the music takes an abrupt twist and turn, as if Organum recorded all of this on an old reel-to-reel tape, splicing random events together. At fifty minutes, this is undoubtedly a lengthy Organum Electronics release, yet my advice is to play this loud and on repeat, and one is in for some thorough cleansing." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
