Oomkah / Black Sky Chant – collage
It is fair to say that the culmination of the cubist art of Georges Braque is creation of pictures with collages of unexpected elements, such as sand, iron, wood, etc. Using many different materials, the artist concentrated harmony in a single form. Media artists of the “Collage” project are author of “Aatdushi”compilation series, Oomkah Dee, and musician Black Sky Chant, earlier known as Bedroom Bear, who made a number of drone ambient releases before. Each of two artist has its own way of creation of the certain image. Oomkah connects home listening on the background with piano plays, remembers passages from the French emigrants’ poetry and adds the voice of Korean diva to it. 19 tracks found a room in a 30 minutes period. United music layers multiply troubled emotional background. There are totally different colors in a Black Sky Chant’s half-hour journey. He is using dim lo-fi and dron to literally press the listener against the hot ground and then, in the middle of “Collage”, to dip into a lake’s water. This is how the journey stays in the memory for a long time. Any lo-fi music associates with tapes, therefore, the cassette release of “Collage” is legitimate, despite of the modern kitch. For digital-format lover this release will be free.
