Void if Removed by Méryll Ampe
Original release by Audiotalaia (Spain).
Thanks to Edu Comelles for this release on Murmure Intemporel.
All tracks produced and arranged by Méryll Ampe (2016).
Méryll Ampe is always working on the physical dimensionality of sound, or on its sculpturisation either live or recorded as an album, as she presents now. The four tracks where fracture, disruption, timber transformations, clashes of textures and the de-composition of noises are the main characters. The constant fracture of the plane, the acceleration and de-acceleration of almost industrial ambiences pushes you deep into a unknown and unexplored sonic terrain: 100% personal and unattainable. It's a scalpel directly operating without anesthesia in your inner ear.
A big amount of this sonic sculpture, chopped into a thousand pieces, sits on top of a premeditated process of frequency oxidation, and the metalic sonority that one breaths in throughout the four tracks that compose "Void If Removed". "Vertigo" is specially full of tension and sharpen edges along its almost 9 minutes, after that, through "Odessa" we roll down an ambient tunnel ...
I met Méryll personally in 2013, since then, a very special connection happened. We shared experiences and sounds in total complicity. Since the beginning I knew I was in front of a top artist and time has just confirmed that to me. Méryll is one of the great ones. And this new work of her might be its best until the date, considering what's to come.
