marina rosenfeld (feat. warrior queen & okkyung lee) - P.A. / HARD LOVE

It's a collaboration that just shouldn't work, but the collision of sounds pieced together by New York based composer and conceptual sound artist Marina Rosenfeld, alongside virtuoso cellist Okkyung Lee and, most strikingly, The Bug collaborator Warrior Queen, has produced one of the most surreal, futuristic records you'll hear in 2013. The inter-dimensional blend of Warrior Queen's vocals and Okkyung Lee's cello infused, electro-acoustic scapes draped by the intense frequency modulations of Rosenfeld really sounds unlike anything you'll have heard before: it's sort of like Rashad Becker, Kode 9, Ryoji Ikeda, The Bug and Laurie Anderson all playing at once, somehow sounding cohesive and startling all at once. Adapted from a series of quasi-sculptural sound system installations, 'P.A. / Hard Love' unfolds around morphing location recordings with unstable acoustic parameters, or "tuned atmospheres" as the label put it, in electronic soundfields strafed with eerie sci-fi tones and complex synthesizer patterns. Warrior Queen sounds like she was dialled in as a mischievous AI presence; something like a character in the latter chapters of Neuromancer, singing and spitting amidst the laser zaps and gyroscopic diffusions of 'New York / It's All About', or digitally shredded as a flickering, holographic simulation against the abstract ragga-tech refractions of 'I Launch An Attack' and the titular 'Hard Love'. Most crucial to the record's appeal, though, is that constantly morphing patina of electro-acoustic flux; like the scramble suit in Philip K Dick's 'A Scanner Darkly', perpetually shifting and realigning your ear's focus between the peripheries and the foreground with something approaching a slow, controlled, cybernetic psychedelia. Quite simply, it's a stunning and highly idiosyncratic record, one that sucks you in deeper with every repeated listen.
