Title: Kunshi
Format: Download Only (MP3 + Lossless)
Label: Farmacia901 (@)
Rated: *****
This is the first solo EP from this artist and it's presents as derived from the author's "interest to the 'eight consciousness' developed in the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism" as "Kunshi ['¦] is the eighth consciousness which has the function to store all the memories". The result stands in the tradition of minimal electronic music typical of this label.
This long track starts quietly with the reverberated beat that is usually bound to orient's sounds, then a soundscape made out of field recordings or the resonances of this beat slowly emerges from the background until something ebbs between a drone and a noise so trying to overcome the musical spectrum. When the clock starts the second half of the track, a new drone start his dialogue with the beat and this time is able to prepare the road to the soundscape that is the main element to the last part of this track and, colored by barely audible noises, ends the track in a pure silence.
While in the tradition of this genre, this project reveals a craft in sound construction that could reserve some real surprises in the next releases. Not only for fans.
