- Broken Wisdom On Its Wild Lone by Sindre Bjerga & Robert Horton

ROBERT HORTON & SINDRE BJERGA & CAREN OHLSON - BROKEN WISDOM ON IT'S WILD LONE cdr ( Striate Cortex )
Royal, shimmering drone which constructs vast polar landscapes in one's mind (see cover) -- or, perhaps, limitless, moonlit desert. Robert Horton (Egghatcher) on gong and computer, Sindre Bjerga (Bjerga/Iversen, Fibo Trespo) on synths and tapes, and Caren Ohlson on abstract vocals. Constructed via intercontinental collaboration between El Cerrito, California and Stavanger, Norway. As always, the music moves slowly, and reverberates glisteningly to hypnotic effect. My prior exposure to Bjerga's work is limited (though his tome-like discography renders just about everyone a novice), and in Horton's case I'm a complete virgin, but this tremendous composition is an astute example of all that's positive about the drone scene. Although Broken Wisdom's sonic progression is glacial even by the genre's standards, one can't dispute the appeal of this momentous forty-minute head-trip, its dynamics sublimely grandiose, its timbres superb in a charred, apocalyptic sort of way. And despite being pieced together between both sides of the Atlantic, this has the cohesion and personality of a live collaboration. (By Michael Tau/Indieville)
