Boomkat Product Review:
Craig Tattersall's umbrella publishing return with engrossing transformations of Angus Carlyle’s film soundtracks by the field recordist-artist and previous collaborators, Chrystal Cherniwchan & Craig Tattersall (Cotton Goods, The Boats, Hood, The Humble Bee), available in two editions - a 10" vinyl in custom packaging, or a limited edition version that includes an 84 page book with inserts, perfect bound with gloss laminated cover and uncoated paper stock.
Using source material including original sound and field recordings made during spring in the Southern Italian mountains of the Picentini national park, the trio produced a two-part concrète and electro-acoustic collage entitled ‘Non Mountain’. The collaborative work impressionistically expounds upon and transforms the work with a captivating, sound sensitive nuance where source sounds are isolated, magnified and rearranged to form a dreamlike suite of barometric flux and changing sceneries underfoot and overhead.
The A-side stealthily lures you along a coarse-textured scree up to vertiginous, quietly breathtaking ambient pads where we intercept the scrambled texts of the original piece and inclement weather, before the B-side follows the course of gravity and water down into more forested zones and sublime glades flush with diffused, GAS-like string loop harmonics, industrial clanks and distant voices with an exquisite timbral frisson.
