More Info

"Behind Blindh hides S/, a belgian sound composter & distiller...his creations based on field recordings, various electronic treatments & manipulations, and an amalgam of both, show a sheer depth & multidimensionality through detailed textural & spatial developments. With only a downloadable compilation on Ruidemos, and a vinyl on Ini.itu, whose lenghty titles give away a love for "terracing", recontextualization, and a consummate art of a story into a story, Blindh has already achieved to build a cohesive singular complex universe where Mystery is omnipresent... a negation of all easy short cuts, and a yearning for a refined sense of aesthetic, permanently supported by perceptive observation & empiric practice...
Blindh transforms his intimate world into a vulnerable pregnant sound experience...
Swallowed up into the strata,
Dragged by some distant memories,
aware of their driving force,
small debris uncoil their tales...
Wood is cracking,
Low ground is breathing,
Various modulations of an invisible constant...
Scrutinizing beyond,
"Laguna Sunrise" exhales life, disrupting time,
illuminating the moments,
the bareness of a shore,
the slightest cracks,
in a festival of shimmers...

"... Its from somebody whom we shall refer to a S/, from Brussels and who is behind the excellent record label Ini.Itu. Their releases focus on the use of field recordings made in Indonesia. So he has a released an MP3 on Ruidemos and an one side LP for his own label, actually the start of the label. Like on the previous releases, Blindhead uses extensively field recordings, but, and this might be a new feature on the Mystery Sea label, these seem not derived from anything close to the sea. Crackles of wood, human activity (recorded over a great distance it seems, allowing lots of hum as an extra musical source). It continues where the LP left. Lots of acoustic 'rumble', contact microphone stuff and such like, but its all sounding quite mysterious (I see here more mystery than sea). This is due to the fact that the pieces are heavily layered and filtered. Distant rhythms are present in the final piece, but they are a rarity. Throughout an excellent work of field recordings, microsound and ambient, touching at one hand on all the familiar grounds, but Blindhead has enough of its own to make things thoroughly interesting. An excellent release." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
