blacworld Subduing Demons In South Yorkshire (Part 2) (CD, £5.10)label: intone
Recorded in the summer of 2000, this is basically a long, open-ended track, mixed live in Western Works Studios, Sheffield, which utilises as extra sound sources urban birdsong, the sound of scaffolding being erected, a gang of builders singing ”we’re all going on a summer holiday” and a loud mouthed neighbour. Subject to much processing and sonic manipulation, this piece of soundscape/satanic dub has been used on two occasions as the soundtrack to Richard H Kirk video installations. Clocking in as a single track at a staggering 53 minutes 52 seconds. Due to the hypnotic nature of the soundscapes, it is a genre defying composition that soon draws in the listener to terrifying effect, creating the impression of being stuck in a nightmare that you can’t escape from.
