Shimmering, spacey and subtle electronic music now that engages with you emotionally, from Shima33 on his latest cassette-tape-opus for the technicolour Catalogue of Dreams. Music which is ideally suited for soothing this reviewer towards the end of a Monday, following a back injury I sustained just over a week ago. At home, I hasten to add. Here’s a warning for you: don’t even attempt to heft a big bin full of garden detritus up a steep set of steps single-handedly. And then launch yourself into a set of stretches and ‘sun salutations’ on a Sunday afternoon. The words, “Ooooawrrraww”; “Owwwwch”, and fucking “AAAAAAaaarrghh!” may have come from my throat. Pity my poor girlfriend who has to put up with my complaints.
More relaxing than a Downward Dog, this tape contains the sounds of weightless chords rotating in deep space. A space in outer space, a space in inner space, and for all the spaces in between; space is the place. Fortunately, I’m sitting down to review this, and I may be here some time. On ‘Null’, a piano melody slowly unfurls as the light from distant stars dimly but steadily permeates the deep, dark blackness. Profound melancholy grasps hold of the thin air on the following track, ‘To Say The Thing That Cannot Be Said’ with its low chords and sounds of someone sobbing in the background. More mournful beauty on ‘The View is Beautiful from Down Here’ -- piano steps amongst starlit ambience, shades of Vangelis here.
Really, it’s all very lovely and the loveliness keeps rolling smoothly along. Serene sounds for all your post-injury / pseudo-spiritual / not-at-all-spiritual healing needs. Oh, and floaty. I forgot to say that.
