"A new piece from French composer Lionel Marchetti composed in 2003-2005. 'Noord Five Atlantica' is working around the world of the sea, animals and humans." [label info]

"On the same label is 'Noord Five Atlantica' by Lionel Marchetti, the self-taught master of musique concrete. Liner notes are all in French, and so is the labels website, which is a pity, since I am a bit in the dark what it is all about. It's a relatively long Marchetti piece, just over thirty three minutes, and throughout it breaths a solemn atmosphere. Its almost drone like, composed of sustained sounds from instruments or field recordings (the latter being more likely), but interrupted by spoken word (by people such as Yoko Higashi and Greg Kelley) which is likewise hard to follow what it is about and radios tuning in and out. Despite all this vagueness, there is a great deal of tension around this piece. It's like some anger is always lurking around the corner, waiting to attack. Sudden outbursts in sound makes this even more scarier. The whole piece is quite narrative, even without having an exact understanding what it is about. A powerful piece, almost hrspiel like. Great listening but be careful with it in a dark room at night." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
