‘Dreaming Remembering’ is an album of freeform, explorative electronics and the soundtrack to a short film of the same name (peep the video) from Ectoplasm Girl Nadine Byrne. I was supposed to write about this album last week, but despite having heard it about five times now, I’ve had real difficulty summoning the words. Like trying to recall a dream itself - dream logic is so far outside rational logic that trying to articulate the inexplicable becomes quite a conundrum. That’s always the sign of a really good dream, and indeed a good record. Byrne’s sound on this record is quite different and more straight up “electronic” than the more spooky, witchy, f/x laden sound she conjures with her sister as duo Ectoplasm Girls.
Opening with the regal synth motifs and friendly vocals of ‘Atlas’, we’re plunged into a mysterious dream world like zone where there’s something that feels bafflingly familiar - it feels like the sort of out of body experience associated with anaesthesia. It’s a place constructed from trippy vocal loops and intimate spoken word, glistening synths, skeletal downtempo techno, eerie drones, and peculiar vignettes. The overall effect like a waking dream in real time - so it’s pretty weird and yet totally accessible and absorbing.
