Drawing himself out from within the folds of NNCK, Pat Murano has gone on to litter New York City with the sounds of his grimey electronic meditations and the hallucinatory happenings of numerous clandestine interaction groups such as K Salvatore, Key Of Shame, Raajmahal, or Safiyya. Murano has released a number of his surreal spells as gypsy souvenirs via his private imprint Kelippah. Within this bounty lies one of the most mysterious and undefinable of works, known only as Decimus. Over the last two years we have seen an impressive series of LPs (as well as the odd tape and cdr), all given seemingly arbitrary letters or numbers for titles, most of which were released on Kelippah, as well as several handsome releases on the Italian labels Holidays Records and Planam (a sublabel of Alga Marghen) . The music of Decimus is highly oblique and personal sounding. Uneasy electronic orchestrations flow within and without a m-©lange of intuitive concrete collage, vocal intonation and ritualized electro-acoustic performance. Like little else before it, except perhaps the likes of Kluster, or another of Conrad Schnitzlers incredible inner space adventures. - Polydipsia.
