LASSE MARHAUG / MARK WASTELL

Kiss of Acid

(Monotype - MONO033) CD $12.75

Wastell’s misfortune-prone project started with a gigantic tam tam, recorded in 2004 by Graham Halliwell; Marhaug applied his electronics, computer, and compositional structure to the recording in 2005. A mere five years later, here is the forty-minute result -- dark, haunting atmospheric. Cardboard gatefold jacket with twelve-page book.
