Marina Rosenfeld and Ben Vida - Vertice [Fridman Gallery 001 Promo]

Put on the circuit via the recently launched Fridman Gallery imprint run by the NYC-based art space of the same name is "Vertice" - a vinyl album presenting two recorded improvisational performances by interdisciplinary artists Marina Rosenfeld and Ben Vida in January 2016 and May 2019 which have been dug up from the archives of the Downtown Manhattan venue. With both "Any Landscape" on the A-side and "Branches" on the flip we see the two artists explore a sonic landscape built on a background foundation of crackling surface noises paired with psychedelic - and probably psycho-active - wanderings through the stereo field, ethereal non-vocalisms, multi-layered, yet stripped down electronics and percussive eruptions, presenting a vast, ever changing chain of acoustic events furthermore including twisted pianos, what seem to be morphed Field Recordings and cold, outerworldly, yet nonetheless fascinating tonal shifts as well as movements alongside minimalist sequences which directly catapult the listener into a surreal deep dream state of sorts which presents loads of wondrous experiences to even the experienced connaisseur of advanced electronic music.
