Ronn, Christian / Bob Bellerue : Intoku Inversions (Anarchy Moon Recordings/Nishe)

Beautiful long-form drones and harmonic interactions develop and are then shaken up with sonic deformations and collisions, returning to beautiful environments and then reversed once again, from the duo of sonic explorers Bob Bellerue and Christian Ronn, recording in Copenhagen using organs, electronics, winds, and feedback to create these wonderfully alien domains.

Artist Biographies:

Christian Ronn: "Composer, performer, producer, organplayer - electronic music, free form, sound art, film music. Curates Spir festival. Masters in Organ from The Royal Danish Academy Of Music in Copenhagen.

I'm interested in the greyzone areas where sound breaks up and transforms into something else. The stretched out feedback just before it feeds or the battle of two frequencies fighting to dominate the aural space. The moment before the vibrating string distorts and the seconds following the release of the huge clusterchord, where energy still hangs in the air. I like to stretch out and examine "inbetween-moments" and unrecognizable states of being.

I guess this translates into the music, but not always in the most obvious fashion, even though it's definitely informing it. I aim to put light in the cracks, open up a new space, give an experience of transcendence. A journey beyond language and thinking. Ultimately."

sample the album:








descriptions, reviews, &c.

"If you are looking for an album that is dynamic and full of movement, Intoku Inversions might not be for you. The opening drone of 'Intoku Inversions 1' is pretty much what to expect for the whole album. Don't get me wrong, It's pretty great. Everything has a wonderfully elongated vibe to it. The notes just sustain and sustain. The shimmering tones underneath feel luminescent and the throbbing bass could be devastating if played on the right sound system, but variety, there is little.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Too often, musicians rush to get to what they perceive to be the 'good stuff'. However, they sometimes miss the point. The point isn't the 'good stuff' but how you get there. Intoku Inversions is effectively build up. Yes, there are 'peaks'. You could claim that around the halfway point on 'Intoku Inversions 1' is that Ronn and Bellerue have been getting too, and after that, it's a nine-minute outro. Or you could say that after eight minutes of consent drone, Ronn and Bellerue have had enough of this and want to try something different. Either way, you end up at the same point. The glorious drone has ended. It is replaced with the sound of feedback, scratchy metal and audio detritus. There is something playful in this section that was absent from the beginning. They are experimenting a bit more. Showing their curiosity at combining contrasting sounds and motifs. 'Intoku Inversions 2' starts like the opener, but there is more movement of sound. The drones feel like they have a purpose. It isn't an exercise in seeing how long something can last before they need to change it. This is partly because the feedback is more prominent. It is used like an instrument, rather than an afterthought, as it was on the opening track. It is both rich and lithe and is the backbone of the track.

This is not the album to play if you are in a rush to do something. It won't work. You'll get frustrated either at our lack of time or the music inability to get to the point quickly. Instead, the album is better suited for when you have time on your hands. This way you can get lost in the drones."-Vital Weekly
