bestia centauri: teratogenesis

chain d.l.k. []
webzine, italy, september 2007

Bestia Centauri is a musical project that begun in 1999, I had the chance to listen just to his previous "The Antediluvian Earth", which was an interesting sonic exploration dealing with pre-human lifeforms and Lovecraftian/esoteric myths still avoiding many of the cliches of dark ambient.

"Teratogenesis" slightly changes the approach and takes a further step away from dark ambient realms. In fact it's an example of electroacustic mastery with a thick gloomy atmosphere. The irrecognizable sound sources now resemble more the most enigmatic Xenakis ("Persepolis") but feel newly fresh in this context.

This remarkable work is a co-production of Afe Records and Eibon. I strongly recommend to check-out the explanation beyond Bestia Centauri's concept on his website.
