Krzisnik, Borut – “Stories From Magatrea ” – [Transparency]

Laibach guitarist Borut Krzisnik takes a fine
stab at modern symphonic composition. Stab is
the operative word, razor violins are plucked,
stuck and gouged. As much tension as a prison
break over a frozen river, and the ice cracks
with every step. Cinematic feel, Morricone
intensity and a Hitchcock twitchiness. Yet
there are moments that bring a dark chuckle,
or is it a maniacal cackle’Spare linear notes
offer a nod to Douglas Adams…this is music
that even Marvin the despondent robot would
find uplifting. Exhillirating!
