anla courtis “ornitologia” one-sided long playing record
|december 2008 release ; single-sided lp with a 1992-93 piece by reynols’ alan “anla” courtis ...|
let’s see what’s in store ... first, there’s 4 minutes of subdued pitched-down guitar clank, after which a massed root-fifth line comes in & builds for the majority of the side (courtis’ take on “doom” ? perhaps ... listen to the sound-sample) before fading into silence, then into a short bit of wobbly modulated feedback ...
pressing is not the most ideal, but then again there’s only 105 of these suckers ...
|8mm 032: anla courtis - ornitologia - 12" one sided vinyl|
a talisman, a living mandala. recorded in buenos aires, 1992-93 (!) and now brought to life by the chants of birds, this is anla courtis 'ornitology', a poem about the secret forces of nature and the most sublime forms of communication hidden in the forest. earth, water, wind and fire the elements that are all living inside these three gems, starting with a spectral ballad, "quetro", and exploding into the second track, 'escua', 16 minutes of epic guitars flying over an endless sea of visions. the last track, 'tersina', is the final redemption, and it comes through as a primitive-electronic assault! pure magic.
