quandary. You’re an up and coming artist who also composes music.
You release your debut "Cellblock"’ to critical acclaim.
You take some time out. Recover and plan. You then release the ‘oh
so’ difficult to follow second release "Seishinbyouin"
to even greater plaudits. People are calling it the scariest recording
ever committed onto shiny disc. The response scares you. Doubts creep
in. Suddenly you’re thrust even more into the limelight. The expectations
weigh you down. The third release seems a long way off. You fret. Gathering
your thoughts you start doing what you do best. You lay down track after
track. After weeks of sweat and tears you’ve finished. The tracks
are finished and a title given. "Kapnobatai" it will be known
as. You go over and over each piece of music making final tiny adjustments
and adding the polish to make it shine. You can do no more. And here is
the quandary. Do you submit it to the record label that has shown so much
faith in your talent… knowing that it will be forever compared to
your second masterpiece…or do you admit defeat and give up the ghost
is all of this. A huge Pandora’s box of delights. Dare you open
it? Dare you peer inside? Dare you face the demons laying in wait? Well…dare
you? The difficult third recording is finished. Laid to rest. To be savoured
and relished. To be played back to back with "Seishinbyouin".
For they are both on equal footing. They are statements of an artist in
total control. A master of all he surveys. A virtuoso of black ambient
music. Miss this at your peril.
