Artist: NEOTANTRIK
Title: Blue Amiga
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Andy Votel and Demdike Stares Sean Cantys concept group, NeoTantrik, return with the fruits of recent performances alongside Buchla maestro Suzanne Ciani, Swiss jazz legend Bruno Spoerri, and folk artist Jane Weaver. Recorded during sporadic visits to theaters and art spaces across the world, Blue Amiga follows one year on from their Intervisions (VHSX 009LP), further flinging the coordinates of their improvised alloys to encompass, extract and reduce a broad spectra of influences and disciplines taken from theatrical sound design, Italian library and computer music with general abstract and unrehearsed mechanical/human/electronic interfaces. Put simply; its a trip. Augmented by the presence of synth music and electro-jazz pioneers Ciani and Spoerri -- both subjects of excellent reissues by Votels Finders Keepers label -- plus the return of Jane Weaver and home-made music by the Sound Awareness blogs Martin Young, the team sweep us through engrossing soundscapes fanning out from sub-aquatic drone to radiant electro-acoustica, gloomy cues and strung-out, opiated ambience of a deeply romantic, adult nature. Garbed in Asia Argentos gorgeous cover design -- featuring an image depicting the private family swimming pool photography of giallo actress Daria Nicolodi -- Blue Amiga wears its cinematic influences quite literally on its sleeve, while musically rebuking the obvious stylistic blinkers of European film music in favor of genuine naked exploration and expansion." - Pre -Cert Home Entertainment.

Title: Intervisions
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Intervisions documents select live actions by Andy Votel, Sean Canty of Demdike Stare, Jane Weaver, and N. Rackers NeoTantrik syzygy over the last 12 months. It breaks down to five parts recorded on location in Bristol, Rotterdam, and Stockport -- some previously issued on tape -- in mutating alignments of personnel all deeply focused on common goals of abstract sonic transcendence uniting a mind-field of mimetic and sensual references to nu-religious and metaphysical phorms. Three pieces were captured at Bristols Cube Gallery, ranging from the pineal dilation of "Parched Effigy (Cube 3)" to their tunneling, 10-minute trip across fragmented free jazz and kosmische "Intervisionary Heretic," and the overheated machine squall and concrète confusion of "Xian Octagon." The Rotterdam parts are more concise, potent, travelling great distances during two minutes of astral flight in "Coloursound (Worm1)" and vaporizing into radiant metallic dissonance during the five minutes of "Crolyn Emphasis." Jane Weavers contribution provides a more controlled and somber counterpoint, calcifying their abstract tendencies in the organ meditation, "Sous le même soleil, vie disparu dans le ciel," recorded at Compstall Mill in Stockport. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy in an edition of 500 copies. Artwork by Andy Votel." - Pre-Cert Home Entertainment.

Title: Omnichrom
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Once again mining a rich source of archival material, tape works and improvised recordings, Andy Votels Neotantrik tap deep into the subconscious with a highly-visual trip into the furthest reaches of psychedelic ambience. Following on from Blue Amiga (VHSX 010LP) that came and went in a flash, Omnichrom is a more brooding, studied affair. Unfurling from a delicate modular opening sequence, the A-side flows into a hallucinogenic fever-dream fleshed out with barely-there analog malfunctions and strings that suddenly throw you into a cacophony of noise in a proper creeped-out, tense fashion. The flipside carries on from this point -- pushing you deeper into a Badalamenti-esque soundworld replete with unnerving found sounds and mechanical percussion swung in and out of one of the trippiest Kosmische sessions weve heard in a while. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering in an edition of 500 copies." - Pre-Cert Home Entertainment.
