Akira Rabelais: ...bénédiction, draw.
Full length CD. Availiable June 2003
Fluttering like a bird's wings the music begins. Moving backwards and forwards at the same time, not standing still but describing the present moment as an eternity.
"...bénédiction, draw." is Akria Rabelais' third major work, a 71-minute piece for electric guitar, processed with Argeiphontes Lyre, his very own audio software, consisting of a set of time domain filters performing esoteric algorithms. In the best sense of a musique d'ameublement it shows itself as an acoustic state rather than a sonic wallpaper.
Like his former offerings "Elongated Pentagonal Pyramid" and
"Eisoptrophobia" (both to be found on Mille Plateaux' sister label
Ritornell) "...bénédiction, draw." is a true masterpiece of digital music,
incomparable with anything else around.
