MS-031 SVART1 - "Der Schnitter" 2011 tape (5 EURO)
Svart1 is Raimondo Gaviano, who works in the fields of Ambient, Dark Ambient, Industrial, live-performance and video. He is a collector of sounds and noises, which are the basis of his music. He generates it from field-recordings, syntheziser, guitar, dulcimer, pc or other interesting stuffs.
DER SCHNITTER is defined by a persistent use of images and topics coming from a psychological, sadomasochist and self-destructive background, inspired by a widespread desecrating attitude, sometimes profane towards religious symbols represented by the thinness of a woman unconsciously responsible of the body’s functions and of her sexual acts. It represents the experience of a progressive passage, that implies a “renewing death”.
Sounds, basically of post-industrial features, go along the trip of human body’s decomposition, a body which is then covered by a “white blood” as a symbol of purity renewing in small actions that pervade the surrounding, sometimes disconnected and unpredictable, sometimes designed in details.
Such actions, sliding unconsciously towards the mise-en scene of parareligious rituals referred to the Christian liturgy and to the classical Greek tragedy, include both erotic and disgusting feelings without a solution of continuity.
The end will be the rebirth. Tape release, limited to 60 copies! http://www.svart1.altervista.org, http://www.myspace.com/svart1

He first gained attention in 2006 by writing to as many industrial, ambient, EBM and goth bands he could find, including "reviews" of them in his idiosyncratic style, and asking to collaborate. His scattergun approach proved successful, despite his reviews of non-sequitirs and non-sensical cyberspeak being interchangeable, and a slew of collaborations from flattered musicians were soon foisted upon the world.

Objekt4 returned to Mask of the Slave Records with this great stuff, after several releases with other labels in the industrial/experimental scene. Kenji Siratori: a Japanese cyberpunk writer who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose. His is a writing style that not only breaks with tradition, it severs all cords, and can only really be compared to the kind of experimental writing techniques employed by the Surrealists, William Burroughs and Antonin Artaud. Embracing the image mayhem of the digital age, his relentless prose is nonsensical and extreme, avant-garde and confused, with precedence given to twisted imagery, pace and experimentation over linear narrative and character development. With unparalleled stylistic terrorism, he unleashes his literary attack. An unprovoked assault on the senses. Blood Electric (Creation Books) was acclaimed by David Bowie. Limited to 100 copies. http://www.myspace.com/objekt4
