Boomkat Product Review:
The Wanda/Ono co-op deposits Dice Miller and Michael Holland’s curious, improvised collage, Saints of Cinema as their 7th release following enigmatic instalments featuring Fith, Enir Da, Andreas Reihse (Kreidler).
Saints of Cinema was improvised to a 4-track tape recorder “over one intensive, improvised burst” at the Islington Mill, Salford, on January 28th, 2017. Dice Miller reprises her narrative protagonist role with coolly poetic poise on a trio of hard to place pieces, alternately trading in grubbing, dead lo-fi electronics and elegiac organ keys with Sermon Remix, then with a denser thicket of layered location recordings, news reportage and distorted electronics in I Can See No Reason Not To, and a coldly echoic invocation of stark drums and ghostly vocals samples recalling some mix of The Stranger and Pinkcourtesyphone on the unheimlich deisgns St Valentines.
