Mohammad. Roto Vildblomma|
Label: Antifrost Records
Recorded and released in Greece, May, 2010, with 400 copies. A review adapted from the web: Ilios, Coti K and Nikos Veliotis are Mohammad. Except for the first and the last track, in which there’s a vague hint to the structure of a “tune,” the whole CD is constructed upon “low frequencies” and “subsonic throb,” and, “drones”. We can hear the walls quivering depending on our position – it even happens when entering an adjacent room – and, walking around becomes the best way to enjoy the prevailing mass of tremors. The sources (contrabass, oscillators and cello) cannot be identified without surfing the web for this info. The haunted quality of some tracks doesn’t leave any residual space for smiles, leaving us alone in a bleak perspective of sunless reflections and exclusion from joy. The rattles and the groans do the rest quite successfully. I (LK) found the sounds of little interest, but not grating.
1. Vildbloma (4:48). Low pitches, slow tonal motion, diatonic harmony.
2. Skóra (5:05). Mid-range, quietly vibrating, sound of rotating woodsaw.
3. Lamane Kradoj (10:07). In a submarine, with an audible, quiet engine.
4. Letzten Tränen (13:20). A desk fan vibrates erratically, humming.
5. Luminus Vuori (4:40). Distant airplane engines rumble, then over drone a low, sax-like, semi-Scottish, walking-rhythm "tune" is repeated and varied
