To Be Self-released
An important piece of musical experimentica is wandering around the private area in MARMO's sound laboratory, waiting to be pressed onto something physical. The collaborative project between two long time friends from back in the day began as a metal and screamo outfit, however as maturities and tastes have evolved over the years, so has the music they make.
A textural and sonic reality comes into being as the sounds begin to make their point seconds after their entrance. Disconcerting yet epic scapes leer from one side to another, further than the ear can determine. Bringing notes and sounds from different families of sound and colour together distorts the unilateral flow of the experience, wavering twists and abstract harmonics dress the feeling with a subtle elegance yet busy mindedness which manifests through well balanced and rich tapestries of effected sample.
Chaos is represented well, and as the mix is given a push in one direction or another, the flow adjusts well to ensure that the intensity remains within the yellow and not the red area of comfort There is a lot to listen to, and the pitches and shrill intersections give a quality of artiness which could take a little adjusting to for non-accustomed listeners of strange music.
As a work of musical art, the rhythms and sounds produce an overall effect of bustle and ordered disorder, with sound piling up in areas and spaces left in others. A passageway of listening is given a signposted plan as everything flows from this to that in well orchestrated and passive shifts. The tracks set the scene for conversations, reading, art, or simply listening to. There's a lot of room left in the head for something else while this explores the various directions it illuminates, and there's plenty to listen to if all you need is something to direct the passage of thought.
The album is as yet unavailable. MARMO has the intention of pressing it onto a vinyl release, and are using Kickstarter to fund this adventure. The vital qualities of this experimental work deserve to be made permanent, so it would be great if Electro Review readers could give what they can to help them along.
