Metal Edict 02:03:19


Metal Edict is one such 'sleep fiction' as mentioned in the label's statement of intent, and a deep listening experience for both headphones and room playback. Built using a single source recording of a piezoelectric microphone attached to an industrial appliance, which then became layered and processed via a number of studio machines and effects units, Metal Edict hovers like a fog on a distant and desolate planet. Red sand dunes as high as mountains, like frozen waves, ripple across a surrealistic landscape, and somewhere inside the cloudy haze above them we can make out a single inorganic structure - a dark plinth, a solitary watcher standing what could be miles into the sky. This much is all there is to observe and contemplate, the rest has been left unsaid by the artist's subconscious, leaving Metal Edict to provide a liminal space between here and there. Meaningful or meaningless? Substantial or vacant? Purposeful or random? There are no words etched on this Metal Edict to provide an answer.
