Album Review

Elektriktus – “Electronic Mind Waves” – [Ictus]

Thee Opinataur   3/14/2012   A Library, CD

Originally released in 1976 on 12″ vinyl, remastered and re-released in 2011, Electronic Mind Waves is Elektriktus’s only album. Elektruktus is actually a pseudonym for the accomplished percussionist and composer Andrea Centazza. The name is a melding of his first experimentation with electronic cosmic kraut-rock and the name of his avant garde-jazz trio ‘Ictus’. This entire compilation was recorded with a TEAC 4-track and a couple of keyboards in Centazzo’s private country studio. The 8 tracks on this album are the recording of a journey which takes off with ‘Frequency Departure:Flying at Daybreak and concludes with ‘Frequencer Arrival’. On this journey you will be awakened to synth dominated chimes with support from subtle cymbal and gong. Along the way with each keyboard dominated wave the listener is treated to a cosmic journey time warp that pleases the senses and quietly keeps a meditative trance throughout. The best of this journey is track 7-‘Flying at Sunset’ as you truly can feel your entire being quietly alone in the fading burnt atmosphere. – Thee Opinator
