THE SELVA + MACHINEFABRIEK – ‘Barbatrama’
The post-production electronic processings of Machinefabriek enabled the musicians to go to unpredictable consequences: a puzzling sort of cybernetic tribal music, primeval dance rhythms associated with the space imaginaries introduced by Sun Ra but also Tangerine Dream.
OKER – ‘Susurrus’
There are inspirations here from folk, minimal composed music, improvised music and maybe even post rock, all formed in a way that sounds like nothing but Oker. “Sussurus” gives us a kind of concrète, acousmatic music where tapes or electronic devices are replaced by acoustic instruments. And it sounds beautifully.
