Black To Comm – Before After (LP+MP3)

Image: 1657153 Black To Comm masterfully manipulates sound, his alterations rendering sources unidentifable and serving as a sort of portal to new realities. Composer Marc Richter collapses the past, present and future of recorded music into kaleidoscopic pieces that transcend genre, bristling with detail, an intense sensory sonic experience.Before Aftercharts a hallucinogenic journey through polar extremes of emotion and to the outer reaches of sound, a perfect companion to the darker Seven Horses For Seven Kings. Before After was written during the same sessions that gave birth to Richter’s recent, highly acclaimed, Seven Horses For Seven Kings. The intentionally crafted companion pieces mine similar raw sonic materials to yield radically different results. Where Seven Horses was a dark work focused on anger and desperation, Before After fnds faint glimmers of hope in the same sources. By reappraising the past, Richter divines new futures, opening up parallel timelines and sonic universes. The album bookends the current phase of Richter’s output as Black To Comm, a decisive statement piece that leaves the future of the project tantalisingly open-ended. Limited edition one time press.
