stephan mathieu + caro mikalef - Radioland (Panorámica)
In conjunction with Caro Mikalef, Stephan Mathieu follows up last years sold-out Line release 'Remain' with a much darker episode entitled 'Radioland (Panorámica)'. As far as we can tell there's no direct correlation with his much cherished 2008 album 'Radioland' for Die Schachtel other than aesthetic or titular. It's a brand new piece of work, commissioned by Panorámica and recorded on March 11, 2011, at Espacio Fundación Telefónica Buenos Aires with a setup comprising two Fender Twin amps, an Ampeg SVT-810 and a 21 x 4m video projection. Stephan is responsible for Radio and processing while Caro plays Columbia Phonoharp. Together they amass a haze of microtonal drone shifts and languid, hanging harmonics feeling at once wide open and really rather dense, as though they're conducting a heady weather front through cloud seeding-like sonics. If you're familiar with Mathieu's work, you'll know there are very few other composers in possession of such elemental mastery, but there's also a gritty rawness to this recording, perhaps thanks to his Argentinian counterpart, which lends a dissonant tang and texture which is very welcome to these ears. Recommended.
