kandahar


"on demand: a small extra run of this extremely nice historical recording. two lovely minimal compositions, recorded in 1982 by this Belgian prog / jazz band, for the Samuel Beckett play "Spel". a soft mix of guitars and synth using the memory moog, korg sigma and fender strato. recorded on a fostex tape recorder. originally released on Hara Productions in 1983 as "Kandahar: Spel - Samuel Beckett" on cassette. (first edition of 150 copies in yellow covers. second edition of 50 copies in grey covers. out of print!)" edições cetacean nation communications

"weird soundtrack reissue from Lieven Martens of Dolphins Into The Future’s imprint, two minimal compositions recorded in 1982 by this progressive Belgian group as a soundtrack to Samuel Beckett’s play Spel. guitar, synth and percussion... " volcanic tongue

otra burbuja de nostalgia y placidez, otra preciosísima delicatessen a baja fidelidad del sello de Lieven Martens. la cara b es puro elixir sonoro, sintetizadores vintage que harían las delicias de Miaux... no sabría cómo definir el sonido del memorymoog y el korg sigma pero es como si brotase directamente de planetas desconocidos, una sensación parecida a lo que me produce el theremin, instrumentos que de tan bonitos, evocadores y anacrónicos no parecen reales
