Bee Mask - Canzoni Dal Laboratorio Del Silenzio Cosmico

Bee Mask (Chris Benedetto Madak) - Canzoni Dal Laboratorio Del Silenzio Cosmico (Spectrum Spools) Comentários: Bee Mask's mind-melting 'Canzoni Dal Laboratorio Del Silenzio Cosmico' was released in 2010 on a c30 cassette through Gift Tapes. Editions Mego's John Elliott-helmed Spectrum Spools label has given it a vital vinyl reissue, faithfully remastered by Rashad Becker at Berlin's Dubplates & Mastering. To say we're excited by the potential of this label is a given, but let's deal with the incredible album in question first. Chris Madak aka Bee Mask's music exists in a continuum of musique concrète and tape experiments stretching back to the earliest emissions of Pierre Henry through more recent sounds captured on The Lovely Music label and the present day hypnagogic/synth noise of Emeralds, Rene Hell or Oneohtrix Point Never. However, unlike the improvised, "one-take" stream-of-consciousness approach preferred by many today, 'Canzoni Dal Laboratorio Del Silenzio Cosmico' has been meticulously sculpted from a range of sounds (listed here as Synthesizers, percussion, piano, tape, and voice) recorded, mixed, and edited between 2006-2010 in Cleveland and Philadelphia. The result is a highly structured and often breathtaking confluence of contrasting sounds arranged with a magnetic mystery and a cryptic logic which will reveal itself in due course. Bee Mask already counts the likes of Autre Ne Veut (who included a large chunk of this LP in his Altered Zones mix) and Will Bankhead (who released 'Frozen Versioning (Hyperborean Return)' on his The Trilogy Tapes label) as big fans, and no doubt your good selves, soon enough. Frankly, this release is unmissable for anyone on the hunt for exceptional new electronic music - Essential Purchase! in boomkat
