Album Review

Courtis/Russell/Prevost/Mattin – “Sakada Sessions, The” – [Azul Discografica]

cinder   5/20/2010   12-inch, A Library

Two side-longs with slightly different players. Side A was a performance/exhibition exploring sound as a weapon. Courtis on guitar/electronics, Prevost on percussion, and Mattin on computer feedback, recorded in 2006. Starts out very minimal, banging on a can style. Whining guitar and whimpering strings, and what sounds like a moist hand sliding on metal (cringe). Sounds take turns, and eventually come all together in a tardis-like drone. Side B replaces Courtis for Russell on synth. This side is more of a power saw infested drone. Some high pitched frequencies, and warbling electronics. Has a science fiction feel almost, in an experimental sound way.
