it was a long time that i wanted to experiment an editorialist workshop - a sort of live review as a dj set - this particular release deserves an editorialist experimentation - Then, what about a live construction of a review ? an unfinished building site of writing in progress for a special birthday more promised to a cure of perpetual youth than to nostalgia ? let's try it, and see the result - your live comments are, of course, naturally welcomed ...
Day one, it was last saturday, sept. 1st, wake up too early after an awful night. bad mood. My first reflexion goes to the fact that, as many concerned people of the scene, i'm waiting for this compilation announced by a few mails from Mogwai. As usual my first reflex is to go to phlow.de - Kreislauf, as a sort of dandy reflex, systematically puts a point of honor for being the first release announced each month on this particular site - phlow seems to have some update problems - bad mood.
But let's just talk music - let's just remember this initial surprise on first listening this "seite 1" intitled "Low Flying Fragments" - first smile of this french sunny morning, i like the idea of "seite", is it a reader reflex ? a promise of "seite 2" then seite 3 ? ... "low flying fragments" after a promising multiple "seiten", the atmosphere is going is weighed down - we will not wait for long - the extreme gravity of the awesome track of DeTrop is immediately collecting your attention and do not slacken the pressure - welcome to the birthday party ! ...
But from now, we are entering in a discreet area, a whispered appointment in a lonely place of evanescent and organic drones (Night-Time Epitome), a place of fractal stains images for Metafame, recently escaped from the brilliant “sooner ep” – from the time, the doors seem to open, ones after the others, it is probable that some of us will lose themselves there in this maze, however so coherent, and it is so much better for everyone ...
7 septembre – 11 :30 (don't want to write in my usual and suspect frenglish) C’est étonnant comme certains tracks ont parfois cette magie d’un quotidien illustré, l'untitled de Martin Maischein en fait partie, une parfaite osmose avec notre perception générale. Sans autre incidence, que d'être là, en une sorte de suspension latente, ils viennent se coller à votre vie, simplement s’implémenter sans complexe, devenir la bande son, toutefois provisoire, d’une réalité « enhanced » ...
Each time I meet the name of Alex Cortex somewhere, there is always a enigma for me, I cannot perceive the globality of this important artist - so much worse for me, his 'archive of 98' does not derogate from the mystery - I must invite him to::the questionnaire, we will know some more ...
Ah … ‘walaskjalf’, If I had to go back on a previous review words for the blog views&reviews, and opinion on the “skyland” of Max Marlow, today … I should probably said that these words (from January 2007) were far from being sufficiently “consistent” because I am not far from thinking that "skyland" is, to date, the best release of the Berliner - am I the only one to think it?
Well, about the “nummer acht” And in a recent e-mail, the same Mister Marlow was writing me “…also jungle wires sounds like the 'afterhour' of the world after mankind, like my track is telling about the deathmatch of it with all those horsewagons and red flags on top of dead bodies - right in before…” I must say I mostly agree on this so neo-expressionist vision, maybe we will talk more about someday or another...
13 september 17:34 - I like the idea of displacement in Niteffect, its "last mohawk" opens horizons for geographical and human delicacies - is "last mohawk" ... a (nomad) cake ?
8 novembre 17:51 - Sursaut quasi hivernal soudain ? à moins que ce ne soit l’amical rappel à l’ordre de l’homme à la casquette en début de semaine, nous voici à nouveau penché sur ces vastes entrelacs de sombres soundscapes tels cette sourde ellipse d’ouverture du lancinant « rch » de Messieurs Omas fgt et Patrice Valota , fascinant dédale secrets de (shock ?) corridors et échos aveugles, the « velvet stars » will not be to any help, He-lux have decided to better mislay you in order to make you numb with some rhythmic abstractions and uncertain voices exercice.
