Release Info:

NOTON signs Italian-born, Bern-based sound-artist and
producer Saele Valese.
In ‘IVIC’, his debut LP, Saele Valese, distills hauntological
noise, droning tonal experiments and minimalist rhythms
into a series of electro-acoustic-wave ventures written over
five years in Berlin, Saas-Fee and Thun.
Drawing influences from the psychoacoustic properties of
the live album format, IVIC’s 11 tracks were mixed and
recorded live on DAT cassettes and through DAW
experimentation, without the possibility to revise the final
recordings. Valese adopted this approach to conceptually
propose reconciliations between the irreversibility of the
past, and acceptance of its residuals in the present. The
track titles themselves follow this pathos, citing the works
of the American photographer Francesca Woodman and
the poet Sylvia Plath. The inclusion of passages
incorporating live sonics and throes of industrialismnso,ton.info
contributes to the images of gravity, intimacy and spatiality
that the music presented here invokes.
In keeping with this imagery, the music possesses a
dilated, shuffling rhythmic base, much like the firm
traversal of a tanker against a storm of jangling
components, and still moments of gloomy sonics
alternating with more ravenous upheavals of power
electronics.
If the track divisions do not pass by unheeded, they
are consistently assembled to sonically accompaign
the emotional charges and momentum of an
imaginary cinematic experience; the beats caves in
for instants of relief, only to recoil in a cognated
tempo but rearranged structurally. In another
gesture of cogitated stride, the portentous waves of
the record progressively rage into a turmoil in its
third quarter during 'Horse The Color Of Rust'. The
album reaches its closure fluctuating through
microtonal oscillations to slowly eclipse into silence.
´In Your Rosary ì and Yì ou Cannot See Me From
Where I Look At Myself ì were previously released
on vinyl via Saele Valese’s own imprint, JSMË.
The track ‘You Cannot See Me From Where I Look
At Myself’ 4 - is dedicated to the memory of Marco
Bacher.

Matt Colton (Metropolis Studios, London).
