Big Up Mix 93 ~ Harem (Old Apparatus)

Big Up Mix 93 ~ Harem (Old Apparatus)


Once in a while we hear something so different that no expansive vocabulary can describe in words. We can try, but all attempts will be discarded as insufficient, pretentious, or simply not good enough.

That is exactly the case with anything that bears an ‘Old Apparatus’ tag, be it a score for an obscure video material, a “sonic witchcraft” – Harem EP – on their own Sullen Tone label, a mind-bending live performance in a Brooklyn underground church, or a 48-minute gripping trippy ritual journey that Harem (one-fourth of Old Apparatus) recorded for us this month.

So we give up, and let the music do its thing: namely, take us on this introspective cinematic journey through textures, with Harem as a visionary guide holding the sonic torch.
