Recorded in a remote English rural setting over a period of 24 hours, this is an apt location for a recording that eschews time and space in favor of methodological displacement and deep psychological navigation.
Modern Methods For Ancient Rituals is an experiment in acoustic and synthetic symbiosis which is deeply influenced by the atmosphere and acoustics of the rural location of Cats Abbey resulting in a set of recordings which can aid to the transformation of consciousness.
File Under: Ambient, Electronic, Drone Listen Here Basil Kirchin: Worlds Within Worlds (Superior Viaduct) LP “Basil Kirchin was a pioneering British composer who blurred the lines between musical genres.
The nine tracks that make up Alexander are bound together by a melancholy sweetness that evokes a performer’s wandering lifestyle and the characters they meet along the way.
Sonically tied to the ‘American Primitive’ school of guitar playing, Shapiro distinguishes himself with an exacting, almost academic focus, manipulating tempo and harmony with a confidence far beyond his young years.
While his career began in the ’40s as a professional jazz drummer, in the ’60s he started to make field-recordings, painstakingly splicing tapes and slowing-down sounds until the source material would be virtually unrecognizable. So Basil Kirchin has made a double contribution: he has not only built the instrument, but has written and played the first successful works for it.’ Worlds Within Worlds remains a lost classic in sonic abstraction.
Originally released on Island Records in 1974, Worlds Within Worlds juxtaposes Kirchin’s various tape manipulations – -amplified insects, animals, engines, glossolalia of children — with traditional musical instruments to form an organic totality that has the overall effect of otherworldly, ambient soundscapes. This first-time reissue is recommended for fans of Broadcast, Aphex Twin and Nurse With Wound.” File Under: Ambient, Experimental, Sound Collage Listen Here ….arrivals…..
