Biography

It is fair to say that the culmination of the cubist art of Georges Braque is creation of pictures with collages of unexpected elements, such as sand, iron, wood, etc. Using many different materials, the artist concentrated harmony in a single form. Media artists of the "Collage" project are author of "Aatdushi"compilation series, Oomkah Dee, and musician Black Sky Chant, earlier known as Bedroom Bear, who made a number of drone ambient releases before. Each of two artist has its own way of creation of the certain image.

Oomkah connects home listening on the background with piano plays, remembers passages from the French emigrants' poetry and adds the voice of Korean diva to it. 19 tracks found a room in a 30 minutes period. United music layers multiply troubled emotional background. There are totally different colors in a Black Sky Chant's half-hour journey.

He is using dim lo-fi and drone to literally press the listener against the hot ground and then, in the middle of "Collage", to dip into a lake's water. This is how the journey stays in the memory for a long time. Any lo-fi music associates with tapes, therefore, the cassette release of "Collage" is legitimate, despite of the modern kitch. For digital-format lover this release will be free.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
