Beatriz Ferreyra - Echos+ [Room40 Promo]

Put on the curcuit via the Australia-based imprint Room40 on March 27th, 2k20 is "Echos+, the latest longplay effort created by legendary Musique Concrete-producer Beatriz Ferreyra who has been an active part of this movement for about half a century now, working solo as well as with genre greats like Pierre Schaeffer, Bernard Baschet and many others over the course of her carrier. On this album Beatriz Ferreyra presents a total of three compositions, starting with the title piece "Echos", a 1978-produced tune completely sourced from recordings of her niece who died in a car accident with sound reassembled to create a captivating cut-up vocal collage of well outerworldly nature. Following up is 1987's "The Doube Or The Swamps", a solemn, ceremonial take on ecclesiastic Ambient which also brings forth sequences crossing over into a state of fever'ish, somewhat threatening, nervous, and nerve-wrcking, unrest whereas the 17+ minutes spanning "The Other Shore" from 2007 provides a cold, score'esque and ever changing sonic journey into the pure dystopian, sci-fi-driven darkness of a space-faring future, the sound of ever buzzing robobugs and other futuro-mechanical insects included.
