Extended guitar hero Oren Ambarchi returns with a new video and a new slew of tour dates!
Ambarchi, known for his deeply textured soundscapes, explores the boundaries between minimalism and maximalism, melody and noise to create an immersive and mesmerizing experience. With Shebang, Ambarchi achieved a dense ensemble sound that was carefully composed while drawing on the free flow of improvisation, with individual voices momentarily coming to the fore and subtle changes in harmony and texture.
Fully engaged on all fronts, "IV" approaches delirious heights. Atop a percolating bed of Ambarchi, Chris Abrahams (The Necks) and Jim O’Rourke, BJ Cole’s steel moans haunted notes and atmospheres as Julia Reidy’s fast-picked 12-string patterns enlarge the scale of everything – an obsessively detailed, relentlessly rhythmic, unabashed celebration of sound.
The striking video, directed by Cedrick Eymenier, employs the strength of "IV" to soundtrack a gorgeous natural landscape. Invisible soundwaves crackle with life and purpose.
