Label: czaszka (rec.)
A collection of improvised studio sessions exploring the minute noise from the circuitry of analogue equipment and its intersection with the moments when the sounds just about to emerge in feedback loops. All tracks recorded live, no overdubs.
Recorded in April 2021, London UK.
"Phantasm caught me off-guard. These small, improvised pieces comprised of analog static seem straightforward on the surface, but there’s an underlying horror and alien emotion woven through these cryptic missives. Fuzz comes alive, moving at odd angles like the sinuous threads are being chased by a series of subatomic bleeps and flashes. Tension rises as the tempo picks up, fueling the disjointed rhythmic quality within each sterile, self-contained unit. I keep imagining being stranded on a broken-down craft in deep space and hearing the sounds of Phantasm as my sanity slowly breaks apart. It’s enthralling if not disturbing. Each of these four tracks emits a distinct hellscape from a minimal, captivating palette and I can’t stop listening."
