ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Birke | Leykam | Panasenko follow up 2002’s “Act on Impulse” with a new collection of surreal soundscapes constructed of synthetic guitars, electronics, bass, percussion, midi trumpet, and chapman stick. Even more ambient and obscure than its predecessor, “Bewitched Revelations” presents 13 hypnotic snapshots of mood and texture. Listeners are transported to an audio environment of mysterious and beguiling sound. This is an improvised exploration of the unknown and unheard music of the mind.

About the musicians:

Martin Birke is an electronic musician and percussionist best known for his work with sandbox trio, Casualty Park, and Genre Peak.

Roman Leykam is a guitar-synthesist who has recorded and performed with the ambient duo, Leykam/Mark.

Daniel Panasenko is a multi-instrumentalist who has explored conventional and experimental methods of music-making with sandbox trio, Peter James, and Genre Peak.

Andrea Ferraris

you never know what to expect…
With these post scornesque/godfleshesque, psychedelic, intimist layouts you never know what to expect…sure, in the most of the case it's an experimental trip but what more?!. This trio's journey is a multiple one, both for the fact they play many instruments and for the simple reason they take different directions while assembling the tracks, beside that the most of it is the result of "free improvisations acted on impulse". On the whole the dye is quite dark but in a psychedelic way, therefore don't think of any contemporary heavy weight, the most of the songs in some way marry stoned electronics a la Mick Harris with a kraut salsa and a freak taste for impros. Even if everybody plays everything, in the most of the episodes Birke's main occupation is playing synthesizers and programming drums (he does it in a really "neat" way), Leykam is the "string man" and Panasenko is the freaky-string man-polistrumentist. In addition to it all they’ve guest intrusion of Mark (radio, noises, midi trumpet, etc..) but more than that never forget everything is filtered and twisted to the bone. This' could be the best possible soundtrack for your burning joints and like a good work based on improvisation it has more ups ("fog patches" for example) than downs, it pays tribute to Fripp, Eno and Laswell intuitions on the creative use of the studio.
