Following the 'Aphex-blessed' En-To-Pan and the more recent ep Hegenrax [OOH-014] Holy Similaun goes further in its intimate and personal musical discourse with Ansatz [attempt / approach] a debut LP and a limited edition lathe cut that seek to investigate uncertainty and the mutation of our "safe spaces".
Extremely dilated fades, intermitted structures, massively warped voices, blasting industrial distortions and gaming sound effects populate the synthetic environments of a not-necessarily dystopian post-something, multifaceted and porous.
The feel is that of a soundtrack for a present future, inspired to the narrative naivety of anime.
Holy Similaun seems to frame its attention on the matter between and around standard musical objects—rhythm, melody to name two— overturning normal hierarchies and apparently reorienting the listeners towards the scenery rather than the 'action'. The voids, the gaps, the structural falls and the physical impact of sounds are the core of that "negative space" in constant change.
Ansatz leaves a sense of the unfinished—distant ambient mutant techno echoes in a Neo-Tokyo-3 soundscape.
►The album will be anticipated by the release of a limited edition lathe cut vinyl with two extended ambient-rework of the LP material [vinyl only].
‘We recently read that Italian artist Holy Similaun’s musical output welds “chaos electronics to de- constructed jungle and industrial power-outs,” and it might be one of the most accurate bits of musical reportage we’ve read in years’. [Crack magazine]. - Crack Magazine
