Boomkat Product Review:
A collaboration between Bip-Hop’s Philippe Petit and Herve Vincenti, Strings of Consciousness is an ambitious and far-reaching project. Although this duo makes up the core of the project, they have managed to rope in an enviable crowd of collaborators. Throbbing Gristle’s Cosey Fanni Tutti, Oxbow man Eugene Robertson, Lydia Lunch, Pere Ubu’s Andy Diagram and Wire’s Graham Lewis (among many others) all pop up, gifting the record with their talents. Doom is the name of the game here, but while the backbone of the record is the kind of grim psychedelic folk experimentations you might expect from the Young God label, the uniqueness of each collaborating voice sets puts it into a realm of its own. Particularly successful is the album’s nineteen minute closing track ‘Hurt is Where the Home is’, which pits the voices of Eugene Robertson and Lydia Lunch against a truly dystopic atonal blues landscape. Frightening, and all the better for it.
