LP reissue of the first full-length
album by Post Scriptvm, recorded in late 2001 and originally released as CD-r.
Unlike the project's later works that are characterized by subtlety and meticulous production, Gauze is an unvarnished, gritty 4-track recording of lo-fi death ambient from the wasteland of southern Brooklyn, NYC, enshrouded in the lingering haze of razed buildings and burnt human remains. The boundary between what is considered normal everyday life and sheer insanity, carnage, personal and social collapse-true horrible face of humanity-is but an ephemeral layer of gauze that can be torn in a heartbeat, throwing reality out of balance, violently and irrevocably.
"This game is prompted by a rip in the fabric of life."
Gauze has the same hypnotic and overwhelming power as a strong fever dream.
It hauls you into a contorted world of loose association, an industrial landscape in which humans lose their form and randomly merge with animals and bizarre machinery, where perception is warped and hours flicker by in an instant.
Null Oppressive drones and bleak atmospheres, interjected with twisted samples and cavernous, haunted basement noises.
"Gauze" has a very cool old school feel to it that's been sadly missing within the 'death industrial' genre.
An album of dark ambience full of trepidation and strangeness.
