J SCHREY with KENJI SIRATORI (Ger/Jap)
"Future Embryo"CDr 2009
(R.O.N.F)
An explosive and disturbing cooperative release is what you must explore when carefully entering the world created by these two individuals. The first one is a German artist who has been known due its explorations into dark ambient soundscapes, while the second is a Japanese cyber punk writer and artist which floats into experimental structures from time ago. Both of them joined forces to create this release which include 6 untitled compositions with intense moments from start to finish. Corrosive structures dressed by subliminal patterns and dense elements crawling from within the whole structure of the album are what you must explore here. Another great aspect to mention here is how voices of Kenji Siratori appear to give deeper atmospheres to each one of the tracks. Incredibly dense disturbing symphonies of melodic and high detailed noise compositions projected to be an apocalyptic journey with no return to the misery of human condition. Are the main elements you must explore through "future Embryo"...more than just a release, this is a portal to unknown futuristic realm where machines and humans are oneself. So for more information just visit R.O.N.F in order to have a more concrete idea of the impressive work developed here!!!

(Quartier23)

A magickal project emanating in deep explorations of left hand path sorcery and offering us a very interesting purpose through 3 compositions of ritualistic character in which each one of them are traces of sexual magickal ritual having in deep connections within the blood and sperm rituals from Fraternitas 333-C.E.so,the path is opened to be explored by yourself through "Preparation : I Am The Flame", an 8:12 minutes opus with dense ambient atmospheres and suggestive soundscapes melting together to create an in deep piece of ethereal elements dressed with impressive structures which transport you to the void for this ritualistic initiation. "Ritual: Red and White", is the second portal this time offering you dark, dense drone structures and strong soundscapes mutating all the time. Atavistic visions and astral abstract spheres collapsing are the elements evoked when deeply the 34:39 minutes composition is explored. Chaotic moments and dense soundscapes are the main elements you can hear here. "Gleanings: Every Man And Every Woman Is A Star”, is the last composition inspired by Fr Perdurabos's liber Al,comes through melancholic piano passages and percussive elements surrounded by atmospheres and voices emerging from the other side of Eden, creating subliminal spaces full of sorrow and more yet to discover. a very amazing release worth to check out if you are looking for ritualistic acts. VIGINTI TRES SAECULA aka XXIII Saecula is the follower of Natural Faith Project & F.Leo Crovey. The album comes in red disc in metal box with inserts. Six is one and this is the way to the empire ov bai sun. Six have three above, three underneath too. Connect and walk back thru the abyss. Follow the way ov man is to follow the traceless.

POSTHUMAN TANTRA(Bra)/ASENATH MASON(Pol)

"Transbiomorph's Necronomicon" Ep "3 cdr 2009

Edgar Franco, the Brazilian deconstructionist, artist and musician opened its transplutonic dimension, through a very interesting release in which you shall experience the dynamism and experimental spirit. This time he has invited the Polish visual artist & esoteric writer Asenath Mason, to take part through dismal vociferations and other structures. "Transbiomorph's Necronomicon" consist of 5 compositions, all of them with enigmatic developments and obscure transformations of sounds, for example the second track is dense and dark, with percussive elements and whispers, voices emanating through the whole track. Through the 3rd one, the seals are broken and transhuman spheres abort its shadows upon earth. The track is an evocation inspired by lovecraftian worlds. Dense percussive parts and atmospheres complementing perfectly with the whole concept of the track. Shub Niggurath is evoked through the 4 composition, emanating its strong currents into sonic mantras developed as the last tracks by suggestive and obscure voice of Mrs Mason. Closing the release is the psychotic expressive voices from Edgar Franco veiled with dark, vaporous atmospheres and percussive tunes, complemementing each other in order to create a chaotic piece of psychedelic nature. The Cdr comes with 3 special cards which you shall experience the visual side of Mr Franco. A Very interesting release worth to explore.



"Nanobods Remixed: Dna-sylicon-Memes" Split Ep "3Cdr 2009

(Sonoros)

A conceptual release in which futuristic aspects and dark psychedelic are generated and mutating into 10 dynamic organisms, floating into all directions, in all spaces. The album is divided into two parts POSTHUMAN TANTRA "Creation” and SOBOTA's one called "Recreation”. Opening its POSTHUMAN TANTRA with 5 tracks, developing experimental hybrid soundscapes with its personal touch, based on bizarre piano passages and discordant elements adapting to the tracks from time to time. Vociferations and other electronic devices are congregated in order to reveal us in deep voyages to distant post human universes. Then comes SOBOTA under the shape of Rodrigo Romanin, in which he develops 5 compositions called "Recreation and the result is so amazing due how twisted arrangements are joined together to create harsh, raw structures with intense moments from start to finish. Both acts creates a psychedelic robotic machine able to mutate into different structures depending of mental exploration of individuals. a short but effective release with original patterns and a subliminal touch which is mutating all the time.
