Black to Comm – “Earth” – [De Stijl Records]

A looped and layered collage of unusual sound sources such as bells, singing bowls, autoharp, musical saws, vinyl and shellac records, metal objects, and harmonium to name but a few. Originally composed –under the influence of heavy painkillers he says, and it really shows– by Marc Richter (aka Black To Comm) to accompany the silent film “Earth” by Singaporean visual artist Ho Tzu Nyen. The film is a post-apocalyptic vision of the earth strewn with junk and rubbish and many bodies who slowly come to life and then I’m not sure what happens after that. This would seem to be an excellent soundtrack for such a film. Sort of nightmarish but not in a scary way. David Aird contributes odd floating vocals.
