ECT For Piano

Maarten van der Vleuten is a name I'm not familiar with but looking through his resume he seems like someone I should have heard of by now after numerous releases on R & S, Apollo, Klang, Signum etc. Here's an uber limited edition of his 9th album of treated piano and noise/drone like soundscapes. The packaging is nuts. It comes in a DVD sized package with a colour booklet and a white thingy stuck to the front. No idea what it is but it's like a bit of a wiry lead stuck on with a plaster. I like the way it looks! The press release for this is fascinating as he goes on about a hospital in Canada where various folks were treated with ECT therapy and he's tried to reproduce the events in music form. As far as drone music goes this is quite chilling at times, dark isolationist sounding stuff which ebbs and flows from being eerie to being really quite beautiful. It's well worth checking out if you fancy summat special as it's really quite amazing sounding and looking!
