CPR-6: M. KOURIE "The Dreams Of..." CD
Chrome Peeler Records
M. Kourie is the solo ambient project of Nathan Berlinguette, who is also known for his work in Creation Is Crucifixion, 5/5/2000 and his record label, Daft Alliance. With The Dreams Of M. Kourie, Berlinguette takes up where 5/5/2000 left off, setting a course for the heart of a black hole, and taking the scenic sonic route to get there. This is the sound of stargazing, a blackened landscape of warm shimmer, that almost imperceptibly shifts and contorts, each new shape even more abstract and more black than the shape before, tracing a minimal path that simultaneously drifts beneath the sea, through subterranean caverns, amidst the vacuum of space and through the impossibility of alternate universes, the pieces and parts and sounds and arrangements are not in and of themselves mysterious, there are soft rumbles, and warm chordal swells, glistening abstract melodies, drifting gauzy shimmer, but the way they are put together, the way the sounds fall into one another, subtly mix, or rest atop one another, these are the things that turn sound into emotion, these are the aspects that are impossible to explain but precisely what make this journey special. Eyes closed, laying in tall grass, atop a lonely hill, a night as clear as glass, the air warm and humid, watching a million years of starlight shift and shimmer. Packaged in a simple two panel black sleeve, printed in metallic gold ink. With guest appearances by Tim Green (The Fucking Champs), Tomo and Ryan Unks (Creation Is Crucifixion, Circadia).
