Panoptique Electrical | "Decades (2001-2021)" | Sound In Silence | 2021 


Del australiano Jason Sweeny residente en Kaurna Country, sur de Australia, se publicó “Decades (2001-2021)”, su cuarto disco en el sello griego Sound In Silence, después de sus álbumes “Disappearing Music For Face” (2016), “Quiet Ecology” (2017) y “Five Pianos” (2020).

Jason Sweeny también trabaja bajo el alias de Sweeny, entregando un fino avant-pop en dos álbumes editados en esta etiqueta.

Este compilatorio de 70 minutos y 31 tracks, el octavo álbum como Panoptique Electrical, cubre su trabajo de 20 años incluyendo piezas ambient, partituras experimentales y bandas sonoras. Participa en este disco como colaborador frecuente en chelo Zoë Barry y en vocales cut-up Caroline Daish.

Los primeros tracks son de alrededor de 2001 y muestran texturas más crudas y polvorientas, incorporando micro ruidos, junto a atmósferas brumosas. A medida que avanzamos hacia la mitad del disco, comenzamos a advertir líneas ambientales puras con una influencia neo-clásica y entornos cinemáticos. En “The Whisper in Your Head” podemos advertir los cut-up vocales de Caroline Daish que develan un monólogo indescifrable. Mientras que en “The Argument” notas de piano se entrecruzan con un loop sofocante. “Beatrice Alive” ilumina con sintetizadores épicos, mientras que “Spiral Room” crea un paisaje sonoro que evoca imágenes celestiales. Completando este compilatorio, “A Red Dress, A Knife (for Ania Walwiz)” dedicado a la poetisa Ania Walwiz, junto a una intrigante atmósfera.

Jason Sweeny devela su capacidad compositora que lo lleva también a trabajar en otras formas de arte como son los filmes experimentales, curando para galerías y obras teatrales y componiendo para importantes compañías y organizaciones de las artes escénicas.

Australian Jason Sweeny, who lives in Kaurna Country, South Australia, released “Decades (2001-2021)”, his fourth album on the Greek label Sound In Silence, after his albums ‘Disappearing Music For Face’ (2016), ‘Quiet Ecology’ (2017) and ‘Five Pianos’ (2020).

Jason Sweeny also works under the alias of Sweeny, delivering fine avant-pop on two albums released on this label.

This 70-minute, 31-track compilation, eighth album as Panoptique Electrical, covers 20 years of his work including ambient pieces, experimental scores and soundtracks. Zoë Barry plays cello as a frequent collaborator on cello and on vocal cut-up Caroline Daish.

The first tracks are from around 2001 and showcase more raw and dusty textures incorporating micro noises, along with blurring atmospheres. As we move towards the half of the record, we start to notice clean ambient lines with a Neo-Classical influence and cinematic settings. In ‘The Whisper in Your Head’ we can notice Caroline Daish's vocal cut-ups that reveal an indecipherable monologue. While in “The Argument” piano notes intersect with a suffocating loop. ‘Beatrice Alive’ lights up with epic synths, while ‘Spiral Room’ creates a soundscape that evokes celestial images. Rounding off this compilation, ‘A Red Dress, A Knife (for Ania Walwiz)’ dedicated to the poetess Ania Walwiz, accompanied by an intriguing atmosphere.

Jason Sweeny unveils his songwriting skills which also leads him to work in other art-forms such as experimental films, curating for galleries and theatre, and composing for leading performing arts companies and organizations.
