8/10 Brett Staff review, 23 February 2011
As far as I can glean, this record was made to function as the soundtrack to a film which then promptly morphed into an art installation, meaning that most of the music ended up not being used at all. Frustrating for the creator, I'm sure, but at least it's now made it onto the world's collective record player thanks to the good people at Dekorder. The description of the original film project paints a picture of a psychedelic audiovisual collage so it's probably not surprising that that's exactly the impression the music gives, except with the pictures left to be painted by your mind. They'd be pretty weird pictures I'd imagine, ones of dystopian railway stations collapsing in on themselves, post-apocalyptic folk bands mournfully soundtracking oblivion, cracked swamis playing themselves to sleep on sitars cobbled together from broken down car parts.. Or maybe that's just me. All sorts of interesting stuff going on here, in any case.
