This album, dedicated to A.O. Spare include 60 minutes of pure magic[k]al sounds conceived by two projec[k]ts: Different State and Sigill. Each of them represents a slightly different approach, although they are both connected by mystic[k]al, alc[k]emical, ritual character.
Marchoff (Different State) describes his music as alchembient. This sums his work up perfectly. It’s a mix of illbient a bit in the vein of Coil or Psychic TV, a great deal of alchemical incantations and moans, there’s a lot of elements so characteristic for Different State. In conciving the following material, Marchoff was aided by Laura Marchoff (angelic[k] voice, custom made generator A-23), Tom Westbum (clarinet, sax, alto sax, trumpet) and Janusz Sokolnicki (tube AMP, lead guitar).
Sigill is a project consisting of brat salo and Nantur-a duo creating electronic lunar spaces and astral soundscapes using samples and ancient instruments. The material was conceived during winter solstice 2006.
