Boomkat Product Review:
In the wake of that excellent Paul Jebanasam album, Cevdet Erek yields excerpts of his tense, percussive soundtrack to Venice Film Festival award-winning political thriller Frenzy (Abluka) on Bristol’s Subtext.
Drawing on an experimental background with seminal Turkish band Nekropsi, as well as his own involvement with Turkey’s youthful left wing struggle, Frenzy presents two connected yet contrasting sides; firstly Abluka Final, which sounds something like a lost collaboration between Cut Hands and The Haxan Cloak - all ricocheting drums and frightful, spirit-burying drones - whereas the other side of scrabbling polygeometrics and concrète rabble feels like hearing a stampede of bodies or cloven hooves from the inside of a tree trunk, or even a cadaver.
We wanna see the film after listening to this. Great work.
