Boomkat Product Review:
Editions Mego present an immersive live recording of Donato Dozzy and Neel's Voices From The Lake, captured in Rome's breathtaking MAXXI museum.
As chance would have it, this reviewer was lucky enough to walk in halfway thru the performance (word, LSWHR!), already dazed by the contours of Zaha Hadid's incredible architecture, to be pleasantly consumed by VFTL's free-floating topography of ambient techno. It was a perfect sound for such a grand container, both reflecting each others' seemingly impossible structures - precariously balanced staircases giving way to huge, sweeping passages and mezzanines in stark monotones - in a contrast and comparison of their respective, curvilinear grids and flowing geometries.
Now, several months later, the sense of scale and motion to this 50 minute piece has lost none of its ability to inspire transcendent states, swirling siren-like synth voices with complex rhythmic patterns that ostensibly stay ever the same, but, upon closer inspection, are found to be always morphing and in flux between dimensions - at once hazy yet lysergically lucid and melancholic as their proverbial lake itself. Book your slot in a floatation tank pronto, and then grab a copy of this.
