Runtime: 80'28''

«Montgomery (Alabama) based Blind Umizato created a hefty release for test tube: This 80+ minutes adventure comes in four different flavours, four tracks that explore the limits of field recordings and experimental electro-acoustics.

Title track 'As the evening descends; Two rivers' is a machine-operated vehicle of some sort, undoubtedly mechanical; 'GTR1' is a long piece immersed in reverb and dense electro-magnetic flow; 'Follow the one armed pendulum' sounds like a mechanical arm coming and going while sometimes touching a trigger that eventually repeats or cuts samples; finally 'New noise massacre', the longest of the four pieces, despite its title is pretty easy on the ears until almost halfway, because from then on it fires a cacophony of glitch and distorted samples of something I am not able to describe. There is a lot to be discovered here.»

Reviews:

«You can find a lot of experimental electronic music on many net labels, but few of them have kept my interest as well as this online album by Blind Umizato of Montgomery, Alabama. The four long tracks on As The Evening Descends; Two Rivers are marvels of industrial sound and field recordings that seem to be mainly machine based. While much of this type of composition appears chaotic, these tracks have a distinct feel of structure which may not be immediately apparent on the first listen. The title track has an industrial sound but it is quite pleasing and certainly ambient. “GTR1″ has an aura of wind and mystery. “Follow The One Armed Pendulum” is back to machine sounds . It sounds a bit mischievous to me. Finally “New Noise Massacre” is the longest track at 27 minutes and, despite the title, is somewhat rhapsodic. Those into experiment music and ambient will enjoy this album. (...)»
