SIGMARSSON, SIGTRYGGUR BERG - Sad Vocal Manipulation..? Sorry, Im New and Not Very Clear On This
Edition of 100. -¢‚Ǩ-ìFrom climax to climax to the point of seizure. Theater gives way to cinema and the blur of the impulsive body. Violin and piano, or maybe just voice and the fading imprint of speech. Vitrine is proud to present the latest cassette from Icelandic artist Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson. Hiccups and romance escape from the throat, mixed into a tincture of robust musicality, location recordings and dense electronics. A demons attack of treated recordings inject raw purpose into each of these varied tracks. Sigmarsson eludes the crosshairs of the specific; his work ranges from painting to photography to drawing to phlegmatic performance, yet no matter the medium, he exorcises the unsaid and undone. Acoustic guitar, church bells and gallows mumbling could just as easily be an outtake from the Gerogerigegeges Endless Humiliation as a deleted Obscure label release. Earnest emotion passes for parody - its all a joke, something to do with canards and sturgeon. -¢‚Ǩ-ìJust because its funny, doesnt mean Im not crying.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù Sigmarsson has garnered an exceptional resume in sound, both as a founding member of Stilluppsteypa and solo, with releases on labels such as Ultra Eczema, Chocolate Monk, Hanson and Korm Plastics. Sad Vocal Manipulation..? is a cosmic ark of diversity, ranging from the micro tensions of the body to painterly landscapes beyond the expanse of recognitions. The sharp craftsmanship leads to a submerged Atlantis, or perhaps just a cheap pub of the same name on Karaoke night. Whats going on? Either way, this one is a keeper. Each copy of Sad Vocal Manipulation..? includes a unique cover illustration, hand-drawn by the artist.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Vitrine.
