Aciem / Flectere

Artist: Various
Album: Aciem / Flectere
Label: Noyade Records (NR-14)
Release date: June 11, 2016

The new cassette compilation “Aciem/Flectere” by Noyade Records carries on the tradition established by previous release “Eintauchen”. It presents tracks by drone musicians from different countries united by a common idea.
Two components of the title correspond to the two opposites of drone music. One is texturized and curve-full. Soft, murmuring, vibratingly hypnotizing Lunar Abyss track is mirrored by – or, perhaps, is a mirror itself – a jingling lingering moment of Ghost Reflection. Bells and voices, spaces that are yet to be explored.
The second side is a Line. And, as every line existing, this one can be followed. “Hydrocution” by thisquietarmy, though, is more of a flow; but one taken by this flow has the time to observe what he passes. Repeated guitar plunks of System Morgue lead you further and further – but the road is not exactly straight. These are other places, and each person is to choose where to stay.
