An Un World
|Titel||An Un World|
Follow up to the fantastic Zammuto CD from a few months back. Liles has taken many small portraits of the soundtrack for the underside of the world and has carefully meshed them with samples that are as theoretically unsettling as any of the authentic EVP recordings conducted by Friedrich Jurgensson. A deceptive lullaby of electronic tones, stereophonic acrobatics and drowned words; the samples continue, that of wind-blown rain against the window, voices down the hall, piano interludes, indiscernible conversations in muffled tones on the other end of the line and sine waves expanding in rooms otherwise acoustically dead. Liles carves his own distinct sound, but a natural comparison may hint towards the instrumental works of Coil, the Hafler Trio (particularly 'How to Reform Mankind'), Eliane Radigue (Trilogie de la Mort) as well as the subtle influence of Bernard Parmegiani. A moribund and profoundly disquieting recording of sadness and beauty.
