Sypha Nadon - 11 Chants for Russolo
'Today, Noise triumphs and reigns supreme over the sensibilities of men.'
-Luigi Russolo, 'The Art of Noises,' 1913
Sypha Nadon's bracing first full-length release with This Plague of Dreaming.
The search for extremes is nothing more then the search for Self. God can be found in feedback: Divinity can be extracted from oceans of chaos. The scryer of this album put himself at great mental and physical risk in his quest to earth these 11 transmissions and place them into a context relatable to mammalian senses. The following songs, dragged out of the Baudelaire Void kicking and screaming like bloody moonchildren, are highlights from the infamous '120 Songs of Sodom' box set, an album so mysterious, no one is sure as to whether it actually exists, or if it is nothing more then an urban myth. The sequencing of the tracks is a puzzle that remains to be solved, but certain avant-garde rabbis on the lunatic fringe suggest the notion that it emulates a basic cabalistic formula. Track 11, 'DNA Blood Madonna,' is a totally new track created from the shells of broken dreams. Consisting of four radically different pieces, it is perhaps the most ambitious transmission yet from the entity known only as 'Sypha Nadon.'
This album is dedicated to Luigi Russolo and all those who carry his flame. To read RussoloÃÂs classic manifesto 'The Art of Noises' (and to get a glimpse of his beloved Intonarumori devices), consult this link: http://www.unknown.nu/futurism/noises.html.
