sample the album:
Sacree Obsession, the new album from the Australian percussionist extraordinaire Will Guthrie, comes out of his continuing research into repetition, the ritual, physicality through volume and mass, and complexity through the development of simple ideas. Combining pulse and rthymic ideas with melodic and pitch based textures he has succeeded in making truly unique music.
Obsessive development of minimal material is not new in Will Guthrie's music, from his brutal tribal like and non romantic vision of free jazz with The Ames Room, to thinking long with the likes of Oren Ambarchi and David Maranha, obsessively working through reduced material has been central to Will Guthrie's music since his debut solo recording Building Blocks in 2003.
With Tetris like logic in it's architecture, "Timelapse" uses notes and tones hung out in space, beautifully resonating in the magical Chapelle Saint Jean in Mulhouse where it was recorded. "Pacemaker" on the flip side recorded at Le Lieu Unique in Nantes, is multi layered and multi dimensional in it's and sonic and rhythmic possibilities, using repetition, resonance and mass to create a hypnotising music which is simultaneously powerful and subtle. This is a highly recommended piece of vinyl for anyone into dark, organic, minimal music."-iDEAL Recordings
