Nascitari - Out To The Great Silence [Needle & Knife - 2015]

Out To The Great Silence offers up taut & cleverly detailed slices of static texturing/ jumpy wall craft. The C20 tapes features two tracks, and each is a rewarding & subtle shifting excise in masterful static noise craft.

Side ones track "In To" starts out with a series of taut & jumping static textures taking in: rips, tears & detailed Morse code like crackles. By around the third minute we move into a more dense jittering gallop of choping/ pitter-pattering static tones, but fairly soon the textures have shifted once more. The rest of the track sees Nascitari subtle yet expertly moving from one texture patter-nation mix to another, adding in layers, and at times also seemingly  shifting speed of textures too- yet amazingly the ‘wall’ never breaks or stops in it’s flow.  The track comes in at the 16.44 mark, and simply put it’s a great journey into shifting yet always rewarding wall fare.

Over on side two we have the second track, and this is entitled "Out To". This track is the longer of the two tracks at 19.55 minute mark. It starts off with a very thin & reduced line of bedded static like crackle, which is edged by tight jitter pops ‘n’ slices.  At around the minute forty mark a controlled rip ‘n’ cut drag is added to the mix, and pretty soon a whole host of perfectly controlled thick rips are added into the tense line of unformed crackle.  And from this point on Nascitari once again offers up a series of perfectly realised & detailed static pattern mixers- I guess I’d say may be this side is a bit more tense & a little bit active in it’s shift than the first side. Once again Nascitari effortlessly moves from one pattern mix to the next, with out breaking the flow of the ‘wall’ it’s self. I’d say this track is equally  great as the first sides track, and really I can’t pick between the two to decide which is my favourite.

The tape came in a fairly small edition of 12 copies, and features a black & white yet pro printed inlay that takes pictures of smudged figures worship before a large black & square monolith.

Out to the Great Silence features two masterful examples of creative & highly rewarding static textured based noise craft from this respected Italian noise-maker. And if my best of 2015 hadn’t already been posted this surely would have featured…so do try & track down a copy before they’ve all disappeared.
