Young Dutch artist Warmonger O (aka Xalpheon) brings us nothing else but the most outrageously experimental and radical release ever on Dream Machine: Not less than five and a half hours of sound, slowly moving (if at all), composed of noisy drones and scarce piano play. Conceptual, physical, mental, this is for the seekers, a tour of a traumatized person’s mind (who happens to develop a love for piano and found sounds). Things escalate in five movements of 64 minutes each, with four short linking pieces, and the struggle against helplessness boils down to the ultimate immersion, a point of complete inwardness, a mind finally severed from any kind of human contact, which is perceived as torturous. In the end, the piano plays again… Surely hard to swallow, this is anti-entertainment, sound as a vehicle, or possibly as a substitute of therapy. Do you dare? Lights out!
