The “BioMechanica” project marks the first collaboration between FRANCISCO LÓPEZ and ARTURO LANZ (founder and member of the current ESPLENDOR GEOMÉTRICO tandem) after thirty years of an ongoing relationship. Their debut album, “BM-01”, is the outcome of years of intense work in multiple cities across the world, from Beijing to Reykjavik all the way to Johannesburg. Raw power and industrial-tribal rhythms, together with an overwhelming sound complexity, a multi-channel spatial virtuality and a spectacular production come together in BioMechanica, synthesizing the insight and experience of two internationally acclaimed industrial/experimental music makers.
A return to the my old aural 'comfort eating' pre-net. Wry smile. Tooth grind. Warm breath of certainty, so far as you can be sure. Overjoyed that this release holds up and gets down, and then some.
Favoured track - the whole project.
[Cabs/RHK should be THE preferred soundtrack to any imagined director's cut of Adam Curtis' documentary series, rendered by a touring mile wide cloud of illuminated drones.] rakhan
