"a finedouble-lp version of this collaboration between maurizio m.b.bianchi and contemporary/renaissance lutist jozef van wissem(in that most to all of the source material comes from van wissems a rose by any other name set) reissuing the ...incunabulum-label disc from ... about which ::
just disc of creakinglow-end drone work from maurizio bianchi comprised solely of recordings of incunabulum-head jozef van wissems renaissance lute playing; in my mind the best m.b.-related release in years... huge walls of sound veering close to andrew chalk / ora / mirror territory ...
certainly the scope of this music is far greater suited to the double-lp format ; bianchis cavernous / mutant treatments of van wissems lute just sing out on the one true format & of course chads attention-to-detail regarding the edition is nothing to frown at, including a giant folderover & an (both block-printed in silver on acid-free, archival-quality stock & the two lps themselves in slick black innersthis is the version to own.have you ever looked into the abyss? man, its scary! an infinite void of the blackest black where not even a gleam of light can escape its dark talons.
needless to say, its not the most popular destination, but hey, it is
there. and believe me, sooner or later that day will come when you will
sit on the cusp and fix your eyes on the vast nothingness that is everything. but until that hour beckons, you may as well prepare yourself by spinning das platinzeitalter.
