Marcus Fjellström - Gebrauchsmusik [Lampse - 2006]

Marcus Fjellström Sculpture classical and electronics sound worlds togeather. But unlike some artist making this kind of thing, it never sounds like a load of badly cut together samples. This seems to flow so well,in a Convincing manner. It also  has a 'cant quite put my finger why' unpleasant and unnerving air running through out.

This seems to hum in it’s very essence the feeling of the day after Armageddon or  blood splattered ceremonies been carried out in grand and kilted surroundings. Or if one was to compared it to a movie scene, you’d think of something like the realization of the Tom Cruise  Character been caught  out as an intruder in the ritual mansion scene, from Kubrick's Eyes wide shut.

Fjellström  ushers and reanimates muffed &  strange vocal samples ,hovering watery rhythmic elements and strange chiming clock sounds- all to give this very strange unreal feel. This really is music to creep out and induce Nightmares.  He also lets the electro elements shine in all there rough glory, it feels as if they’ve been decayed or worn out by time, the rhythmic tumbles and  tickings  often making strange time.

Dance music, 2nd perspective sounds like an evil going wrong music box, Hovered and shadowed by the feeling of death around the next Connor- like clock work men making the way towards a guillotine. Fairytale Music, 2nd perspective starts up with an over flowing of classical drone from hells tarry black pits. Before odd alien sounding mumble voices appear and all manner of dread induce cinematic swing from abyss, raising utter and scuttling their way out of your speakers. The eerier hamoromics of this track almost sounding like a creepy sea boy, bobbing in alien dead sea.

An unnerving electro classical treat, that fits perfectly when unnerving luxurious tones are needed .Ideal to watch dusk creeping in, over a gloomy winters day and Smother the light .This  is always ready to surprise and often chill with its baroque sinisterness
