Premiere: Goner – AS 2 [Last Embassy]
Forthcoming on the new VA ‘Colour of Ashes’.
“Last Embassy is a down-tempo techno label. Our method is distinctive, in that it revolves around research and experimentation of organic sounds and noises.The singularity of our identity is based foremost on suspenseful mechanics; the ability to retain musical dynamics while integrating obscure atmospheres and oppressive rhythms as well as original soundscapes and textures.
One theme took its rightful place in the midst of this experimentation: ritual. Whether they be sacred or symbolic, they are testimony to the strangeness of the rapport between Man and Time. As a precise ceremony or as gesture prescribed by the literature of a particular culture, rituals are at the center of the human paradox of movement and stillness, resistance and surrender, life and death. The fascination for dance, rhythm, ritual objects and the beliefs they imply are our principal influence. The tight bonds between tribal music, religion and techno culture will be at the center of Last Embassy’s mission.”
