Zara Paz - Tape 1 Original [Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse Promo]

Also freshly released via Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse is the first ever tape album of Zara Paz which is less of a musical output but the essence of what a madhouse would sound like. Highly distorted and warped fake interviews in slow motion, computer game sounds, ragged FreeJazz attempts, pure hubbub and dissociative clamour layered on top of the Pink Panther-theme, ghostly, echoing voices scurrying through dark chambers, drums scattered all over the place as well as piano sequences being blown over from afar - this is what the A-side has to offer whilst the flipside weighs in relatively quiet passages of a woman speaking Spanish and probably to herself, partly crying, which are followed by acroamatic, levitating synths and warped, formerly angelic vocals as well as rhythmic pulses of possibly modular origin, trippin echoes of Jazz and even hard electronic drums with a slightly ritualistic feel. This is kinda interesting on the one hand but too conceptual, artsy and way too leftfield on the other to really strike a chord for us and, therefore, defo not a must-have from the Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse catalogue.
