Kai Engel – Paradigm Lost

[SCL145]

Kai Engel

“Paradigm Lost”

Try as you like, it’s doubtful that you can avoid something along the lines of ‘noir’, ‘heaviness’, and in some cases ‘cyberpunk’ when describing this album. We probably can, though. ‘Paradigm Lost’ is uncertain, but not because this contrast between the almost industrial pressure and the usual kind of Engel’s melancholy isn’t organic, it is. And the album is betting on it. It defines its primary mood as uncertainty and confusion. This is a short but memorable road from the most gloomy to the most aspriring moments of Kai’s music.

Wings of an Angel – In My Darkest Dreams (night diary of a poète maudit in earthly exile)

Self-Releae

Wings of an Angel

“In My Darkest Dreams (night diary of a poète maudit in earthly exile)”

Wings of an Angel es un artista envuelto en un halo de misterio; enigmático, quizá como todo verdadero artista, y que crea su obra desde al anonimato. Su concepción del arte va en dirección completamente opuesta a la de la popularidad o el éxito, no digamos ya los fines comerciales, algo que le repugna:
“…proclamo: dejen de vender el arte y de tratarlo como bienes comerciales. ¿Por qué lo hacen? En mi caso, quiero que mi arte llegue a todo el mundo … no soy un artista comercial y no estoy interesado en vender mi música, no tengo que romperme la cabeza con todas esas ridículas leyes de Copyright. Que, por cierto, son un insulto criminal a la creatividad.” (Intangible23)
Su obra no busca entretener sino una comunión espiritual y trascendental con el oyente. Su poesía sonora le habla siempre al espíritu del individuo, a su subconsciente mas profundo, recóndito y escondido. Y es que en la obra de Wings of an Angel, todos los caminos conducen al yo interior, el verdadero, mas allá de convenciones formales o sociales. En este “misticismo postmoderno”, como el mismo lo define, todo termina cayendo por los abismos infinitos del alma.
En esta ocasión lleva al extremo su pasión y predilección por la oscuridad, para aplicarla al sonido; prescinde totalmente del uso de voces (spoken word), referencias Hip-Hop, instrumentos sampleados o mezclas con elementos de música tradicional como ha sólido hacer, de manera magistral, en trabajos anteriores, como por ejemplo en el espectacular (“Requiem For An Anonymous Genius (The Breath Of Life, Carnal Annihilation And Miraculous Resurrection Of The Job Of Art)”).
En este ultimo trabajo usa únicamente drones y sonidos abstractos que generan atmósferas realmente oscuras, intensas y profundas: “Diría que el sonido, en su más pura ausencia de forma, es probablemente la expresión más espiritual de lo divino…” (Intangible23)
En “In my darkest dream”, publicada de nuevo por el netlabel paralucid, Wings of an Angel nos invita a un viaje por sus sueños mas oscuros, que a este nivel son quizá iguales a los tuyos y los míos.
Estos sueños, por los textos que acompañan cada pista, tienen como escenario una ciudad vacía; son recorridos nocturnos por calles recónditas, zonas aisladas, infraestructuras semiabandonadas de ciudades decadentes por cuyas grietas y fallas también se filtra el subconsciente colectivo. En una oscuridad rodeada de lagrimas, con la luz de una tenue luna, son paseos en los que escapar de una soledad elegida, autoimpuesta pero también insoportable; en busca de lo sublime, el infinito trascendental.

Wings of an Angel – Revenge Of The Less Powerful

Self-Releae

Wings of an Angel

“Revenge Of The Less Powerful”

My whole life, I’ve marveled at the ease in which so-called charismatic leaders – political, educational, spiritual, therapeutic etc’ – have led their followers and others in their surrounding to total oblivion.
If there’s one and single insight that you are ought to fetch from my ruminations, it is this: THINK AND STAND FOR YOURSELF, DON’T LOCK YOURSELF IN A HELL THAT YOU AND/OR OTHERS CREATE FOR YOU.
In my perception, It’s always better to answer for your own actions, for better or for worse, than to act by proxy and hide behind bullies, real or imaginary. Such is the path of truly brave men and women.
So, are you truly brave or do you prefer to hide behind your chosen dogma and skydive unto an inescapable hell?

The Fat – Meat Me

D!HR-26

The Fat

“Meat Me”

For its 26th release, Da ! Heard It Records invites you to come meet The Fat, with their first album: “Meat Me”.

The Fat, a band based in the north of Paris, consists of two pillars: Jacques de Candé and Thomas Suire. Louis Pontvianne and Romain Drogoul join the two comrades live. One year after their first stage performance at Instants Chavirés, aside pioneers of Russian industrial music Vetrophonia, their first album, Meat Me, comes out.

The band aims to let the synths speak. Their qualities, their flaws, the damage they’ve suffered overtime are as utilized in the conception of the pieces as are lengthy improvisation sessions.
A festival of Moog, DSI, Roland, Aelita, Jomox, Oberheim, Eowave… The use of exclusively analog machines kindles a usually cold sound into a latent dampness. The construction of the pieces from a bass line, blurry yet well-framed, thanks to a crispy solid rhythm reminiscent of Oto, accentuates our indecision between choppy gesticulations and petrified emotion.

At the beginning of the album, a languorous beat skews all pulse of excitement and favors a listening focused on all of the subtleties in the variations of sonorous matters. When the rhythm accelerates later on, a tribal dialog settles in, where the roundness of the exchanges between melodies and the rhythm box’s primary pulses tangle in despair, as if bliss only ever belonged to the past. A few infecticidian gimmicks erupt on certain tracks, and our bodies appropriate this music in a measured gestural.

Now, it is your turn to appreciate and have your emotions ascend. Shh!… Listen, there…
That little repetitive sound, in the background, in a psychotic spiral, where is it taking us to ? Are we not heading towards Forbidden Planet?
To create the visuals on the sleeve, the band called on Pia-Mélissa Laroche, a graphic illustrator that cherishes lead. Pia’s universe is a mixture of anatomical imagery and geometric volumes where spheres, cubes, and organic cells intertwine. We lose ourselves, like children, in this very personal interpretation of an infinitely small world.

Cousin Silas – Weaving Portraits

SCM-1407

Cousin Silas

“Weaving Portraits”

“Weaving Portraits” is Cousin Silas’s second work with Sucu Music and, by happy coincidence, also the release marking the first anniversary of the label. There couldn’t have been a better way to celebrate our first birthday than by releasing a beautiful work of meditative music entirely created by textures of keyboards and delicate touches of electric guitar. No rhythm, no percussion, nothing that might encompass this music into a closed system. Cousin Silas’s is music for open spaces, and it doesn’t matter whether we are speaking of real spaces or inner spaces of the mind. Call it cinematic, call it ambient, call it soundscapes, call this music as you like, but be ready to leave everything behind and experience it with every pore of your body, every neuron of your brain and every unnamed substance which makes up what you really are.
