New Maps Of Hell - Paul Schutze

   1 review  -  936 views
    The first thing Paul Schütze's music tells you is that Hell has no fixed coordinates. Outwardly its audible signs are familiar enough to anyone living in Anytown (above a certain size), anywhere in the world. The smudged palette of noises merges the hubbub of the crowd, construction - site clamour and the rising and receding hum of traffic with the musics of the modern Balkanised city's myriad religious rituals and entertainments.

Paul Schutze is one of my favorite soundscape artists. Still somewhat ahead of his time, his work fuses fourth world, electronic  and other dark electronic styles into a sound all his own. This album is wonderfully dynamic with slick percussion and deep dives into sonic neither worlds that are rewarded with repeated listens.
