RE-DRUM + EMERGE – persecutory delusion
CD-R in cardboard sleeve (ltd.ed. 50 copies)
live @ NoiseAngriff #47, Berlin, 02.04.14
recording by fgnugn/Frank F.
mastering, photography and design by EMERGE
Although recorded at a concert series titled “NoiseAngriff” (noise attack) in Berlin, this live collaboration is actually a lot less harsh than one might expect. The paranoia suggested by the title might be felt in the dark ambient dronescapes, though.
In this slowly evolving set, the two performers connect to their roots in drone ambient, combining harmonic, yet vaguely ominous electronic textures with small concrete sounds. Over the course of some 45 minutes, Russian artist Re-Drum and his German colleague EMERGE create a vast expanse of sound through which they navigate with tentative movements, like ships in dark uncharted waters in the night.
