Album Review

Courtis, Anla/Kiritchenko, Andrey/Moglass – “Self Titled ” – [Carbon Records]

Max Level   12/5/2006   A Library, CD

Noise/sound/ambient collaborations involving a multi-national crew: Courtis (Argentina), Kiritchenko (Ukraine), and The Moglass, (who are either a duo or a trio, and also Ukranian). Audio sources such as stringed instruments, electronics, synth, percussion, and field recordings are blended into a moody batch of abstract sound-pieces. Each track is a two-way collaboration: Kiritchenko manipulates sounds by Courtis, The Moglass does the same, and Courtis returns the favor by lending his manipulations to sounds by both of the others. Nice areas of clicking, humming, ringing, wavering, drifting, droning, dripping, rattling… Some sections sound quite organic, others rely heavily on electronic processing. Bizarre vocals by somebody on #5. A project well worth some deep listening.
