Stelzer / Murray | “Commit” | The Helen Scarsdale Agency | 2022

 


Stelzer / Murray | 'Commit' | The Helen Scarsdale Agency | 2022


Un nuevo lanzamiento de The Helen Scarsdale Agency, uno de los sellos más importantes de la escena underground que difunde los géneros post-industrial, la electro-acústica, el noise y el dream-pop alternativo, registros de campo. Algunos de sus exponentes son Ekin Fil, Francisco Meirino, Jim Haynes (director del sello, escribe en ‘The Wire’) y Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, entre otros artistas.

Este es el tercer disco de los compositores de música electrónica norteamericanos Howard Stelzer y Brendan Murray quienes trabajan con cintas, loops, electro-acústica y registros de campo que se plasman en tres cortes de largo desarrollo. “Commit” se compone de varias capas: un baño de sintetizadores ambientales, sonidos grabados de distinta procedencia como chasquidos, silbidos, drones y ruidos mecánicos. Todo ello crea una atmósfera oscura que me evoca a algunos pasajes de los primeros trabajos de Strafe Full Rebelion o Illusion Of Safety.

“Commit” aporta con una densa colección de electrónica, ciertamente ruidosa y penetrante por sus paisajes sonoros industriales que vienen cargados de una amalgama de sonidos irritantes, repetitivos y alienantes.

A new release from The Helen Scarsdale Agency, one of the most remarkable labels in the underground scene that spreads the genres post-industrial, electro-acoustic, noise and alternative dream-pop, field recordings. Some of its exponents are Ekin Fil, Francisco Meirino, Jim Haynes (run the label, writes in 'The Wire') and Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, among other artists.

This is the third album by electronic music composers Howard Stelzer and Brendan Murray who work with tapes, loops, electro-acoustic and field recordings that unfold in three lengthy cuts. 'Commit' is made up of several layers: ambient synth washes, recorded sounds from different sources such as clicks, hisses, drones and mechanical noises. All this creates a dark atmosphere that reminds me of some passages from the early works of Strafe Full Rebelion or Illusion Of Safety.

'Commit' brings a dense collection of electronics, certainly noisy and penetrating due to its industrial soundscapes that are loaded with an amalgam of irritating, repetitive and alienating sounds.
