Combining Pateras’ exploratory piano techniques with O’Malley’s harmonic ecstasies, this duo performed a one-off show at Instants Chavirés in 2011. Remixed and re-constructed here primarily using ¼ inch tape machine, Rêve Noir presents a compelling landscape of fractured musique concrète, introspective meditations, buzzing electro-acoustic textures and straight up walls of monolithic guitar.
A 20 page booklet interview with O’Malley is included, covering early influences, the founding of Sunn O))), working directly with mavericks such as Alvin Lucier, Scott Walker and Iancu Dumitrescu, and collaborating with the renowned choreographer Gisèle Vienne.
This is the 13th release in the Immediata series, beautifully presented on white recycled cardboard with red hot stamped text on front. Mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering.
Booklet interview only available with physical purchase.
