Boomkat Product Review
What a beautiful record this is. 'Visitation' is an utterly captivating collaboration of sorts, between man, machine and nature, conducted in the most elegantly simple and effective manner. No more should be said than eRikm's own synopsis of the events which lead to it's creation: "When the sun set on April 1st 2011 I heard through the windows of my house the repetitive song of a night bird. 'Madeleine' brought me immediately back to Luc Ferrari's electracoustic piece 'Presque Rien Nº2'. I became curious about comparing the bird that was officiating in the garden of Cap15 (in the North area of Marseille) with the bird of 'Presque Rien'. My curiosity triggered the desire to play Luc's piece int he acoustic space of my house. With my rudimentary recorder I moved inside and outside the hosue moving back and forth between both spaces. I played with the depth of field, the beat between these two birds separated by 34 years and immersed myself int he acoustic events. "…Alors je suis cerné àmon tour et, purrais-je dire, pénétré en échange." (Thus I am surrounded on my turn and imbued in return.) This Ursprung or temporal Klein bottle was recorded and edited in one single sequence shot" . 1-sided release. Warmly recommended.
