ERDEM HELVACIOGLU & PER BOYSEN - SUB CITY 2006 (CD, private)
In 2064 I'll be 99 and there will be about 3300 Vital Weeklies. Unless of course there has been some horror like apocalyptic scene as depicted by Erdem Helvacioglu and Per Boysen on their new album 'Sub City 2064'. The soundtrack of an imaginary film. The two plays guitars, electronics, flute, saxophone and such like. The music is not exactly what would be required from a science fiction soundtrack, I think. Its is mood music for sure, but not that an apocalyptic nature. It sounds a bit improvised, certainly in the parts which quite extensively wind instruments such as in 'Wedding At Coral Plateaux', but most of the time every inch of guitar playing is filled with the extensive use of electronics, which add ambient textures the music. Although both players, each a giant in his field, are great, and the music is quite alright, its perhaps also something that doesn't stick entirely to my mind. It stays perhaps a bit too much on a superficial level. It would be great to see the movie, I think. Obviously there is none, but what would be the film about I fantasized. Not a question I can answer. Surely not heavily apocalyptic. The website provides some clues, but its all a bit too 'easy' I think. Make the movie! (FdW)
