Boomkat Product Review:
Ricardo Donoso dons his Scuba Death gear for a second exploration of mortality on the ever-excellent Further Records.
Scuba Death remains Ricardo Donoso’s creative self-therapy for dealing with the inevitable feelings of fear and anxiety after a brush with his maker whilst diving in the South Atlantic some time ago.
This second album finds the Kathexis man seeking out 19th Century American philosopher William James for further inspiration, whose 1902 book, ‘The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature’ is responsible not only for the album title but also Donoso’s continued belief to channel his fears for creative means. We move from the sea to the earth on ‘The Worm At The Core,’ Donoso’s trademark field recordings culled from a series of thunderstorms rather than the scene of his brush with death.
These are expertly interspersed with chilling cello work by Rafa Selway into Donoso’s pulsing, tranced out arpeggios and low-bpm ripples for another reflective, intense collection of Scuba Death material.
