2006. Act III of VidnaObmana's series AN OPERA FOR FOUR
FUSION WORKS is now ready! Remember, Act I was released
in a four-CD case, and acts II through IV are sold in a
simple paper sleeve (with booklet) to be inserted into the
Act I case.
Each of the four acts of this project utilize different
source recordings by a different artist. This time the
featured artist is Kenneth Kirschner, performing on piano.
The treatments and processing by vidnaObmana this time are
quite daring and experimental, edging at times into the
realm of "glitch" or subtle noise experimenation. Overall,
though, the feel is of gentle piano sonics, with a smooth
and hypnotizing atmosphere rarely disturbed by well-placed
bits of digital distortion.
Belgian ambient experimentalist Vidna Obmana is working at
the height of his powers here, as he nears the end of his
4-part "Opera" cycle.
The usual disclaimer applies... this music is not in any real
sense "opera" music, and the term is used only to suggest
the varied, multi-part quality of this ongoing release.
