duchamp Nar (LP, £14.95)label: Boring Machines
DuChamp is an Italian scientist, musician and curator based in Berlin, religiously devoted to drone. Drone is related to a precise childhood memory: the sound of the hair dryer, that her mother used to fix her hair. That was the sound of care, bliss, and infinite love. Through the five tracks on the record, different aspects of DuChamp's love for droning emerge: on the opener 'Gemini' long accordion waves creates a trance-like luminous drone with is enriched on the way by DuChamp's hypnotic chanting. 'Protect Me From What I Want' is a darker affair, with the baritone guitar rumbling in the background on a monotonous note. 'A worship' has a song-like structure with voices repeating an anthem over a synth drone. "A way to grasp my joy immediately" is again relaxed on low frequencies, while 'Seisachtheia' is an improvisation between DuChamp's baritone guitar and Filipe Dias De on sitar.
