"There is, in the Limoges (France) area, a number of neglected industrial sites. If one's walking in these sites he would be able to experience their past activities - more or less recent; it would be revealed by characteristic material or by the site's layout itself. One of these places has hold our attention : an industrial complex of 10 hectares was created at the end of the 19th century on the banks of a river. Its goal was to regenerate hevea's sap in order to manufacture tires, tennis balls, soles, gloves, teats... It helped the just born latex civilization to grow... This decaying factory, disused since some years, was ruined by many fires due to the numerous flammable and polluting materials located on site. Despite the fact that the place is disused, it has got a strong sound identity, a rich sound spectrum.
It was very important for us to introduce this area to you. The interest was to combine the place's discovery with the discovery of the works of numerous artists - working with field recordings made on specific sites. The recording of sound atmospheres of a place could be considered as fixing a fragment of time, space, history (Quite like a photograph).
Representative matters (wood, stone, rubber) of the factory were taken, then sent to the artists. The parcel also contains photographs of the place and a representative sound sample of 15 mn, a kind of sound plotting. This field recording was made by TOY BIZARRE in January and February 1996 and edited by Bruno MOREIGNE. We decided to avoid human sound sources in order to let the place "express itself". With these 15 minutes of sound and the various samples of the place, each artist was able to give its own sound interpretation of the place. The one and only restraints were: to use ONLY the sounds we gave (to do a sound regeneration) and to record a track of 4 mn 30 maximum. All the sound treatment/composition methods were authorized. [You can listen to the original sounds by playing the uneven tracks.]
We can draw a parallel between the rubber regeneration (past activity of the factory) and the regeneration of the factory's actual sound (the result of the decay of the place); that's the core of this project. This parallel also allows us to apprehend the sensibilities, the place's visions of each artist - because they all worked on the 
same sound basis."

Various ‎– Invisible Domains (CD, Compilation ,1994) (Malignant Records ‎– MRCD0001) FLAC

Bringing together the leading experimenters from around the globe with one common theme - to portray viral infections in all their guises. So huge amounts of potential there. VROMB take the Ebola theme of the album and sets gentle noisework against a distant tribal rhythm. Sounds not unlike a collaboration between VIDNA OBMANA and WHITEHOUSE might sound - heaven forbid such a fire-and-ice meeting of forces were ever to happen, but the calming warmth mixed with shrill scratchiness works incredibly well. STONE GLASS STEEL's track(s) are more narrative than descriptive - painting the virus from the outside rather than experiencing it from within. This is more an experimental noisework and evokes nothing like what the alien invasion of a virus might be like. It steals snatches of choral music (from "Glory" maybe) and becomes itself the virus, taking over an existing body (of work) to transform it into something else. SOLDNERGEIST again use noise, with some of the harsh bite taken out, but nevertheless still extreme and grating, cumbersome for the lack of 'top'. CONTRASTATE never really let us down, and this time they have created a soporific drifting piece of Horror Film drama over which cicada-like noise rises up. Minimal - I mean Minimal percussion is used to give the piece a little structure. It then heads into a darker simmering primal soup, gentle but with enough weirdness to give it a black drama. KIRCHENKAMPF follow the mood perfectly, only disturbing it now and again with sudden shocks of sound which crash out of the speakers like electronically-altered thunder. A long track with plenty of changes - hot, though. ILLUSION OF SAFETY take human voice, mash it all up with fx and feed it back to us as a complex, machine-born loop before taking us on an almost toneless sequential journey which finally ends with a mountain of raw noise. YEN POX return to a gentler, more Isolationist area, where the virus is insidious, entering quietly, unannounced. Passively churning coils of noise grow gradually into progressively noisy moments. The sound of structures fed through thick fx (slapback echo?) heralds the arrival of VOICE OF EYE's contribution. This is a group who never let you down, and their metallic-flavoured slow journey rocks no boats as far as that goes. Dark, with shapes wrought out of a shared nightmare between H.R. GIGER and H.P. LOVECRAFT, this is a journey through a dark place, where even the singing of angels cannot help you in your hour of dread. MAEROR TRI bring us the penultimate number. Distant drumming like heartbeat forms the foundation for a track which transforms but slowly. It builds up in gradual metamorphosis, keping the passive feeling throughout, leaving the way clear for LULL's track, and indeed the album's concluding piece. MICK HARRIS never lets you down, and this piece hearkens back to when the first couple of LULL albums came out. Passive, harmless yet it's very calm disturbs the listener.
A bit of a mixed bag album, but mostly good descriptive stuff. Nothing here actually chilled me to the bone, which the idea of Ebola and other such nasties does, but perhaps I'm just a little jaded. Certainly one to turn the atmosphere a tad colder, and to dim what light you have.

Colaboración en vivo de DAN BURKE aka ILLUSION OF SAFETY con dos más que interesantes proyectos, LIFE GARDEN y VOICE OF EYE. El primero de ellos, formado por varios miembros de MAYBE MENTAL (entre otros DAVID OLIPHANT) y activo entre 1989 y 1996. El segundo, un dúo formado por JIM WILSON y BONNIE McNAIRM ( también en CRUO) y en barbecho desde 2012 aunque no oficialmente disuelto. Todos estos nombres forman parte de la escena experimental USA de los ’90, y se mueven en terrenos ambient. El mismo año 1995 se registraron otras dos colaboraciones entre LIFE GARDEN y VOICE OF EYE, fácilmente rastreables en la red e igualmente nutritivas para el cerebro. Recomendable la visita a la web .
El disco registra sendas actuaciones de DAN BURKE con VOICE OF EYE y LIFE GARDEN en Abríl de 1995, en Texas y Arizona  respectivamente.
Música meditativa, tranquila, con pocos sobresaltos, y , en lo que a mí respecta, muy adecuada para combatir este calor que incomprensiblemente llaman ‘’buen tiempo’’, qué coño habré hecho yo para merecer esto…

Intentando volver a la carga, poco a poco, para aumentar el ritmo de este querido blog al que le tengo tanto cariño, casi tanto como el que tengo hacia mis seguidor@s y colaborador@s, con los que siempre estaré en deuda por su abnegación y entrega.

Hoy he visto un link de Youtube de un tema de este proyecto sonoro estadounidense de sonido industrial oscuro y me ha sentado como un bálsamo, una auténtica inyección de positivismo y ganas de volver al frente. Se trata de una cassette C-40 de auténtico sonido electrónico industrial de atmósferas densas que resume muy bien la propuesta sonora de I.O.S., un gran grupo que hay que tener muy en cuenta.

Dadme tiempo para que poco a poco vaya volviendo todo a mi normalidad dentro del blog. De momento...
