Boomkat Product Review:
Raw as hell electronic experiments right here from Olfactory Nerve aka Thessaloniki’s Photis Houliaras, who also goes by names of Le Fonte Son and Ulmus Fagaster.
Being on Details Sound, you may have some inkling of what to expect from Orfeo, which is essentially rhythmic noise. However, that descriptor falls short of the more absurd, phantasmagoric spirits at play inside, which smartly manifests the album’s titular reference to the mysterious Thracian musician and prophet of Greek religion and myth.
“Influenced primarily by synth electronic music and psychedelic mysticism, the Greek electronic composer is injecting new ideas into something in the ballpark of the unknown rarities from the underground cassette scene. “Orfeo”, his first album for Details Sound, offers a diverse range of original and magnetic output with a naive experimental heart.”
