What you hear is a manifestation of opposites, the submerging into the alternate universes of the collaborators, bound to a closed auditorium.
Distorted screams, noise loops and sound manipulations meet bells, field recordings, natural sounds, piano passages and harmonious arrangements.
A claustrophobic scenario, this 24-minute piece comprises the live-action in its entirety.
The other side of this album marks the return of COLUMN ONE after a 2-year hiatus and is a monument of power - a radical clean slate.
The first 15-minute piece (Shake Hands with Mr. Ringling) was recorded in Berlin with various classical musicians and evolves from an open electro-acoustic space into a massive orchestral drone, comparable with Organum, Penderecki, Hermann Nitsch, or NWW.
The second piece (Voodoo Bumble Bee), based on a loop from the 1920s, marches forth as a tiny, amusing machine.
