HZHZHZ AUSTRALIAN NOISE DUO
Cat Hope , is a composer and sonic researcher at the cutting edge of the avant-garde in Australia, as well as artistic director of the Decibel new music ensemble who are dedicated to contemporary electronic s, the integration of acoustic and electronic instruments , and interpretation of the classic masters such a sCage and Scelsi .
Tristan Parr , who was also involved in the Decibel project,, as well as in other offshoots of the drift of experimental and abstract electronics that have been "Cultured" in recent decades.
In this HZHZHZ release however , published by Italy's Brusio Netlabel , Hope and Parr sound very rock . It is clear that there is nothing to do with the song form here. Quite the contrary: the deconstruction is complete. The point is that HZHZHZ evokes an imaginary world similar to the wild ( and cacophonous ) depravity of rock weathering : empty beer cans abandoned on the floor of a rehearsal room underground next to an ashtray full of cigarette butts ,empty beer bottles , tube amps that hiss and the hum of a mass caused of unplugged jacks.
Aesthetics of destruction, in short, that resolve in the wall of sound and the restless search for a primordial noise. HZHZHZ moves along psychedelic and deep noise territories, embracing a sound that resembles the analog of yesteryear. It's kind of intense trip that recalls life in old ghosts: the outros of
Crazy Horse, delusions in acid, the Swans playing on the Sabbath, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon turned into zombies, Uncle Lou rewriting Metal
Machine Music in 2014.
A disk of radical noise that wont give you a peaceful sleep, anti-hipster, dark, all played in low, very low frequencies, abyssal drones and ancestral visions
Would probably sound like Sunn if they were less metal oriented.
