More Info

"Nach langer Zeit was neues von den belgischen Ausnahme-Avantgardisten, und zwar in der lactamase-serie des US label BETA LACTAM RING (lactamase Nr.07). Auf MUZOOK zeigen sie sich auergewhnlich, massig found-sounds (Filme, alte Platten, field recordings?) & samples und kaum merkliche Drones zerschmelzen zu einer unglaublich unkonkreten, vorbei-schwebenden Akustik-Masse, fr deren feine Nuancen man Mue & Hingabe bentigt beim Hren... visionre (Un)bewutseins-Musik!" [DroneRecords 2002]

Pinging a bit like the audio equivalent of random and drifting thoughts whilst on the subway to work, NMF have an uncanny way of stringing together the disparate sounds of urbanopolis into a surreal narrative. Distant fragments of music blow in and away like a wind which also carries with it incomprehensible voices. A choir of night birds chime at eachother over a faraway metallic ringing landscape. An accuracy of recording and a certain quietude are what make this such a brilliant piece which is not merely for the listening but also effective for mental transportation. I guess the crux of the matter is that "Muzook" is like a recorded memory. Several memories, actually, and ever changing ones at that. This also gains points for capturing my dog's attention. One thing the world needs right now is more music for dogs! [press-release]
