Stephen O'Malley & Attila Csihar - 6°Fskyquake [editions Mego - 2008]

6°Fskyquake is an new and welcome collaboration between Stephen O'Malley & Attila Csihar- the audio composition was original designed in 2001 but explored and grown in conjunction with the American sculptor Banks Violette's solo shows during summer 2007.

6°Fskyquake is one long just over 30 minute long piece with O'Malley utilizing; HP 200CD & Travis Bean / Fender Twin Reverb and Csihar just his vocal power and depth. To create a deeply medative, darkly spiritual sonic work thats lined with discord and bad karma. At times coming off like an darkened and inverted version of Amazing grace, at others like a nightmarish hymn to the darkness beyond most's vision, as Csihar chants and bellows and O'Malley adds in blacked feedback hum, bitter church organ like throbs/ purrs and discordant/ cold strikes of guitar. There’s a lot of dank space and fog shrouded intent with in the piece so it just drifts and ebbs nicely, forming guitar shapes or vocal patterns seemingly having no beginning or end- so you could really have this on repeat quite easily.

It all comes in an oversized colour cd folder with pictures of what I guess are Banks Violette's works along with the original sound score and Csihar texts. It’s ltd to only 500 copies and well worth tracking down as it shows both parties in fine dark form and stands up nicely to replays.
