RRR / Nascitari - RRR / Nascitari [Porn Noise - 2016]Here’s a self titled split C30 that brings together French walled noise act RRR, with Italian project Nascitari. RRR is relative new comer to the scene having only started creating HNW in the last year or so, while Nascitari has been a respected member of the euro wall noise scene since 2011.
The plain black cassette tape comes in a glossy though monochrome single sided sleeve, and features what looks like an over exposed photo over a women standing under a street light. I’m not sure how many copies this came in, but if you can’t get hold of a physical copy there is still the digital download.
Both tracks here are untitled, and on side one we have RRR track- this comes in at spot-on the thirty minute mark. The ‘wall’ blends together a flickering yet constant higher pitched whistling/spinning element, with a thick base of mid-to-low end juddering, hacking, and jittering. There is some pattern shift in the base( though nothing vast), while the whistling element seems to remain the same though-out, save for it feeling more fleeting/ speeding-up at times.
Flipping over to the second side, and we of course have the Nascitari track- and this come in at just over the twenty minute mark. And after the all-out & thick attack of the RRR track, we start-off with a more pared back static study, which is built around a series of fairly similar revolving ‘n’ crisply juddering tones. But fairly soon things start to thicken up, as we get a more detailed & shifting blend of the following: taut & tense rapid bass judders, chopping & thinner tonal rotations, slow-mo pile-ups of chalky billows, low-end & brain throbbing billows, and thinner tonally scuttle & slice. All told the tracks a clever bit of subtle shifting yet mastefully controlled wall matter.
So in conclusion this is a satisfyingly enough HNW split- with the RRR offering up an intensely hacking ‘n’ nerve searing wall. And Nascitari offers up a more controlled & detailed slice of wall-craft.
