Knit Prism – GrowingPosted: January 27, 2014
Now here’s a minor Blast from the Past with Michael Pouw’s Knit Prism solo vision and one of the first cassettes released on Michael Jantz owned Avant Archive. There’s a lot of electric guitar on Knit Prism’s albums, but it’s as if it was not even played by a human. It’s not as much played but rather the strings are brought to life by gusts of wind or birds perching on it. The two sides are randomly enveloping, seemingly chaotic yet harmonic compositions that drift in a semi-conscious haze that reigns all over the cassette, now long sold out. It’s still available digitally, though. And you better check it out – or maybe I’m just a sucker for rapidly descending clusters of guitar notes and a bit of shimmering field recordings. Anyway, highly recommended!
