Sindre Bjerga & Micromelancolié 'Invisible Paths' CD
Another instalment in the ongoing collaborative mail-art series by the duo
of Sindre Bjerga and Robert Skrzyński aka Micromelancolié. The first is a
well-known Norwegian sound artist that works alone and in many projects
(including the excellent drone Star Turbine) and runs the label called Gold
Soundz. Robert Skrzyński does not slow down his creative momentum appearing
for the first time on Zoharum with a collaboration (after highly acclaimed
albums "It Does not Belong Here" by Micromelancolié and "Najas Flexilis
Exequiae" by ForrrestDrones).
The two parts of the title composition included on the album "Invisible
Paths" is a continuation of sound exploration by both artists. The duo put
on a more modest sonic arsenal than on the previous releases, which does not
reduce the quality of these two recordings. In these collages there is a
place for ambient textures, surreptitiously recorded conversation, oily
drones, and even a little bit of tape music. Here and there scraps of melody
emerge from from the bubbling magma, although, in contrast to "Prayer Calls"
for example, they only serve as ornaments. "Invisible Paths" is an exercise
in focusing attention of the listener, but it's a risk worth taking.
The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of
300 copies. The cover is designed by Rutger Zuydervelt (aka Machinefabriek).
It is mastered by Claus Poulsen (the Danish half of Star Turbine duo). The
whole production process is overseen by Michał Porwet.
