Cem Güney: Puts Sound-Theories into "Praxis"

img  Tobias

Cronica Electronica have made available three complete tracks from „Praxis“ as a first appetizer. These show Cem Güney to be a man of subtle shadings and heartwarming quietude: If an undaunting degree of discretion and a high crackle factor sound like your thing, then this could just be your album. Headphones are certainly recommended to fully appreciate the still bazaar of „Factitious Phobia“, with its oriental chants, breaths of hiss and playful clicks, of the whispering psychedelic Raga of „Somewhere between the Middle“.

Other pieces deal with algorithmic composition, african phonemes, „the ancient spiritual art and science of inner transformation through sound and tone“ as well as the use of „vowel sounds in the human language“. Added together and stirred with an unshaking hand, these diverse stylistic elements create a dense carpet of wondrous warmth, which is as unspectacular on a first listen as it is profound and moving on closer inspection.
