Album Review

Mimeo – “Wigry” – [Monotype]

Max Level   2/20/2012   12-inch, A Library

Four side-long sound worlds to get lost in. Here is an orchestra of ten, armed with synths, computers, sampler, electronics, prepared guitar, and a piano, playing live in a beautiful old church in Poland. The naturally reverberating interior of the church adds a pleasantly warm depth to the proceedings. These players have been working together for over a decade, so they know how to listen, what to add, and when. Nearly 90 minutes of material here, constantly moving, layering, shifting, droning, ringing, humming, clicking… to me it seemed to be one collective organism evolving and changing, not ten separate people making sounds, and I really enjoyed it from that perspective. Each side has a range of sounds from soft to loud, but overall Sides A/B are the quieter sides, and Sides C/D are noisier and get more intense.
