BIONULOR - Sacred Mushroom Chant

Format: CD
Label & Cat.Number: Wrotycz Records WRT011
Release Year: 2011
Note: very interesting Polish project, using recycled sounds of the human voice only, heavily processed and transformed; for example shamanic chants during the ceremony of taking magic mushrooms, Neil Amstrong and Marcel Duchamp quotes, or Hassan ibn Sabbah quotes from the author himself; the result is stunning, unusual & haunting & collageous at times... Recommended!
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €12.50


More Info

"Inspired by the work of such artists as Aube and William Basinski, Bionulor again rakes the past, looking like an alchemist for the most appropriate material for their work. "Sacred Mushroom Chant" is a record created solely on the basis of treatment of the human voice without additional sounds or instruments.

Each of the five tracks is based on a separate part of the sound source. Then the base is: an archival record of shamanic chant associated with the ceremony of taking hallucinogenic mushrooms, a Japanese traditional song extracted from a collection of old vinyl records, Neil Armstrong's walking on the lunar surface famous phrase, a fragment of an interview with Marcel Duchamp telling about his first ready-made, and finally the voice of the artist himself denouncing the sentence attributed to Hassan ibn Sabbah (Nothing is true).

Over 50 minutes of pure experimental music (mix of minimal, ambient and even noisy sounds) created on the basis of author's creative method called the "100% sound recycling." You will be really impressed when you realize that those tracks were crafted only with scraps of samples.
Cover art by Monika Machnik, mastered by Peter Andersson. Comes in 4-panel digipack." [label info]
