Boomkat Product Review:
Vinyl reissue of Morton Subotnick's perilous dark side trip, 'The Wild Bull, originally released in 1968 following his seminal 'Silver Apples Of The Moon'.
Based on an ancient Sumerian (now known as modern day Southern Iraq) poem, it's another example of Subotnick's pioneering use of the Buchla modular system, perfectly demonstrating its then new-fangled sequencing abilities to explore fluid rhythm and pattern in a clean break from academic tradition's restrictive strategies of pitch and timbre.
Now, over 50 years old, it sounds strikingly fresh and vibrant, although that vibrant energy is employed to darkest ends as a "simple lament for the dead", and nothing less than a harrowing statement on the experience of war and its inevitable aftermath", according to Julian Cope's Head Heritage site. In contrast to the plangent, celestial highs of its predecessor, this album is painted in tangled low end knots and chaotic, clustered sequences evoking sensations of aggression, frustration and confusion over its tragically tortuous half hour length. 'The Wild Bull''s ancient prescience resonates deep than ever.
