- Lost At Sea by Cane 141
This Cane 141 'Lost At Sea' album sounds a bit crackers until a quick Google search reveals that it's the soundtrack to a collaborative installation with Roisin Coyle. There's a bonkers vocal narrative and plenty of mad trippy electronics / field recordings. I guess it would make more sense with the visuals. Pretty cool though nevertheless. Digipak CD on Micropolis Records.
CANE 141 Lost at Sea Secret Records Over the past 10-odd years, Galway-based Cane 141 - effectively the dabblings of Michael Smalle, who is occasionally aided and abetted by like-minded musicians - have operated not so much under the radar as off the screen.Created specifically as a sonic accompaniment to a visual art installation (by Galway artist Roisin Coyle) for Project 06, the best compliment one can offer here is that this works very much as a stand-alone piece.The theme (and I could be adrift here) is the sheer vastness of oceans and why/how humans are, comparatively speaking, utterly insignificant. The coup de grace - which anchors the listening experience - is the use of former Royal Navy officer, Commander Bill King, who tells salutary and salty sea stories as the music ebbs and flows around his words.The best record of its type this year? Aye, aye, Cap'n. www.cane141.com Tony Clayton-Lea- The Irish Times : The Ticket A quite beautifully obscure collection of electronic pieces written specially for an audio visual installation featuring artist roison coyle and michael smalle, the album features some really lovely lush ambient electronic sounds with an intrigueing narrative from a very posh gentleman as he talks about being out at sea with the navy, it may sound a wee bit obscure but its actually a highly entertaining listen as commander bill king keeps you involved from start to finish, when the chatter subsides you are then left with some lovely lush ambient sounds not too far away from the likes of fennesz or even the icy atmospherics of biosphere, november 2007Road Records
