Utech's Arc Series, featuring covers from the abstractly menacing photographs of Max Aguilera-Hellweg, continues with the first release from French guitarist Johannes Buff A.K.A. Knell. Buff lists inspiration from an incredibly diverse set of artists, including Jason Kahn, John Cage, Fennesz, Arvo Pärt, Otomo Yoshihide, Stockhause, etc. He is a member of Radio Campus Grenoble, broadcasting the show "LSD" on Saturday nights. Utech describes it as: "An attempt to dissect the methodology he explores with guitar. Using a single sound source and unprocessed field recordings Knell invoke rich beauty and obsessive melodies. A luminous patina reveals vague, underlying threat. Drone as a catalyst of frequencies and time. Nothing to understand through listening. Only to gaze."
