Ingenting Kollektiva - Fragments Of Night
Genre: Dark Ambient, Drone, Experimental
Label: Invisible Birds
Ingenting Kollektiva is comprised of Diane Granahan, Kirston Lightowler, Tarrl Lightowler, and Matthew Swiezynski, and is an homage to the films of Ingmar Bergman and Sven Nykvist. The Kollektiva recordings are meditations on the quality of light, sound, and atmosphere, as well as realizations of the various forms of 'nothingness' captured by these two masters. Christmas of 2009, the Kollektiva found themselves surrounded with many recordings from the year 1969, including: Miles Davis & Teo Macero's In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew, John Surman's Way Back When and How Many Clouds Can You See?, and Extrapolation (with John McLauglin), Bert Jansch's Birthday Blues, Vashti Bunyan's Just Another Diamond Day (recorded December 1969), Fairport Convention's Unhalfbricking, Jan Garbarek & Terje Rypdal's Esoteric Circle, King Crimson's In The Court Of The Crimson King, Scott Walker's Scott Walker 4, Holger Czukay's Canaxis, plus many more. With this in mind, they recorded some songs in the Lightowlers' barn during a rainstorm, and later added recordings from Northern California and Los Angeles. The editing process then became something similar to Macero's work for Miles Davis. The recording has been issued as a long-play record with a gatefold sleeve and photographs by Tarrl Lightowler. Thanks so much to Taylor Deupree for bringing many layers & hidden sounds to life in these recordings.
