on organized music: Pascal Battus, Alfredo Costa Monteiro – fêlure; Muura – tape

two brand new releases on the organized music from thessaloniki label. First up a cd from the duo of Pascal Battus and Alfredo Costa Monteiro (whose first album, ductile, was co-released by a question of re_entry and organized music back in 2008), featuring the musicians in further explorations of the sound-making potential of paper surfaces. Some seriously dark tones and atmospheres brought up by the two from these unlikely sources, in this very accomplished disc, recorded during the duo’s residency in 2010 at Q-O2 in Brussels:

then there’s ‘tape‘, a cassette release from Muura, the solo project of australian musician Matt Earle, better known as a member of Stasis Duo, xNoBBQx, and head of the breakdance the dawn label. As Muura, he tends to showcase his more avant-rock sensibilities, but that doesn’t stop him here from producing a headfuck of an anti-rock statement, a dense mass of oversaturated layers of drone and repetition. Scorching stuff.
