Genre/Influences: Experimental, Abstract, Noise.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Originally released in 2002 as a limited CDR on Genetic Transmission’s own label Die Schöne Blumen Musik Werk the album has been now re-edited by Zoharum. The work features the same tracklist while the front cover is nearly identical.
Content: This is a totally Experimental/Abstract album which is also defined as Electroacoustic music. Is it really about music or collecting and manipulating noises. The work sounds like a true sonic collage. It all sounds improvised and a mishmash of isolated sounds, crispy noises and crashing effects.
+ + + : Tomasz Twardawa remains a reference in this particular and extreme sonic universe. It’s an anarchistic sound production which will mainly appeal to lovers of improvisation.
– – – : You’d better avoid this work if you’re not addicted to Experimental/Electroacoustic productions. I’m missing visual content listening to the work.
Conclusion: “News From Wormland” brings us back to the essence of Experimental music which is mainly meant to please a restricted number of listeners.
