MICHAEL ESPOSITO & FRANCISCO MEIRINO - THE PRESSURE OF KNOWLEDGE (7" flexi disc by Gerauschmanufaktur)
More Electronic Voice Phenomena from Michael Esposito. Normally he records those 'voices from beyond' and sends them out other parties for the creation of music, but in this particular case, we find him in a live collaboration with Francisco Meirino from Switzerland. In October last year they did a two day workshop on EVP in Lausanne (Switzerland). The piece here, roughly about five minutes (flexi discs are usually one-sided) contains hardly voice like sounds, or so it seems, but the rattling of chains in dungeons, and electronic sounds to go a long. Here we find Meirino in a less cut-up fashion than some of his other solo-releases, but in a rather straight forward manner, slowly breaking the piece apart and an obscured hum - with what on third hearing could perhaps be voices indeed, or at least one - remains until the end. This sounds great, but oh no, much too short to be fully satisfying. More, more! (FdW)
