about

RM023

Velvet Curtain is Chicago artist Pascal Marc, and 'Spatial Agony' is his Reserve Matinee debut - an intricate and harrowing collection of dense synthesizer compositions & field recordings that display a truly strong talent in the American noise scene.

After spending years as a regular of the Minneapolis experimental music community, Marc returned to Chicago where he recorded the material for Spatial Agony. The opener "Blackened Mattress" drags you downward into its sinking hole, wasting no time in introducing the Velvet Curtain sound -- a marriage of tape, electronics and masterful synthesizer playing.
Hues of dark ambient permeate the album, though we hear the artist use more of a hybrid approach by employing more lively analog synthesizers like the Korg MS-20.

Pieces like "Imperial Water" fully occupy the stereo field with reverb-laden washes amidst bubbly Coil-esque sequences, and the title track demonstrates Marc's ear for microsounds-via-microphone; peculiar loops of field recordings that sound (and feel) up close & personal.
