We've never been massive fans of Francisco Lopez at the towers. I'll never forget a CD we reviewed a few years back with did nothing for about 15 minutes.. built up to a small hum for another 15 minutes or so and then it faded out for the last 15 minutes. Bastard... I've lost that time. I can't get it back.... So here he is with Andrey Kiritchenko with their album called Mavje on the Ukranian Nexsound label. The 2 sound artists have created an album constructed from bits of furniture and field recordings from Kiritchenko's house. So we have Kiritchenko on furniture and Lopez on remixing and deconstruction duties. This is a headphones album and fortunately I'm listening to it on headphones so it makes a lot more sense. You get about 12 minutes of a strangely hypnotic hum which I imagine is the soundtrack to the swirling pit your soul falls into when you die. Then come the swarm of electronic locust which hang around for about 11-12 minutes decimating your ears en route, then there's about 8 minutes of what sounds like the locusts feeding in quite a well mannered fashion and after then it goes into segments of silences and segments of drone. Defo one for the more adventurous amongst you. I like about 20 minutes of it which I suppose is 2 fifths of an album and by todays standards that's actually pretty good. Comes in fantatsic cardboard packaging as well....
