Frank Rosaly / Neolithic Extraction – The Malo Remixes

After three years Frank Rosaly returns to Utech Records with Malo, his second full-length release for the label and follow-up to Centering and Displacement. With a sound befitting its title, Malo is a five track suite of sinister percussion and ambiguous space. For this album Rosaly composed distinct, stand-alone pieces, each with their own identity, yet thematically linked by his singular ear for imaginative performance. Aggressive drum assaults, creaking bowed metal, and complex polyrhythms conjure a monolithic wall of sound. Kalimba, drums, and subtle electronics are brewed into a whirlwind of noise; the skittering and disorienting sound of an ancient ritual. Malo is a dense, haunting album from one of the masters of unconventional music.
Rosaly has developed a personal and often visceral approach to drumming, whereby gesture is a primary element to the creation of sound. Deliberate motion that may or may not produce sound leads to surprising and raw discovery for both listener and performer. Using contact microphones, oscillators, effects pedals and analog synthesizers alongside an acoustic drum setup, Rosaly navigates a wide sonic palette; Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, jazz and non-idiomatic grooves, unconventional techniques, dense free-jazz vocabulary, heavy drones and feedback, as well as soft percussive language that evokes a wide range of color.

"Given that the witching hour is edging ever nearer and All Hallow's Eve is right around the corner, it seemed like an excellent time to hook up with Hannum and find out a little bit about the horror lurking behind some of his all-time favorite movie soundtracks (and yes, there's plenty of Goblin).?"

Via Negativa is the first solo album by visual artist and Locrian member Terence Hannum for Utech Records. Incorporating voice and synth, Hannum creates a world where time slows and sound is reduced to the steady pulse of the universe.

Via Negativa is latin for “negative path.” It is a means of distillation. A way of describing something by saying what it is not.

You might say that ambient music is the music of subtraction: subtract the melody, subtract the harmony, subtract the rhythm. Subtract the author. Where much of music composition is a process of layered construction, ambient composition is closer to that of distillation: find the essential ingredient that will fundamentally transform a sonic environment and dispense with the rest. Recorded in Hannum’s basement studio with the most basic equipment, Via Negativa is a document of the artist’s own meditative process of subtraction. (Liner notes by Jenks Miller)
