Design by Mark Gowing
The Preservation label presents Stand Up Before Me, Oh My Soul! from Italy’s Fabio Orsi.
Fabio’s prolific output has had him heralded as a master of modern ambience, creating rich, freeform atmospheres with organic instrumentation and processed sounds. Though known for momentous pieces of hypnotic power, this work marks a dynamic new turn in Fabio’s sound. The force of his composition takes more of an overt stance onStand Up Before Me, Oh My Soul!. The raw and primal pulse at the heart of his music is writ large here with a punk mindset, unleashing a heady mass of guitars against a backdrop of cavernous, shimmering distortion and crashing drums. (courtesy of Rich Baker, who also performs regularly with Nadja’s Aidan Baker) It also boasts a bristling sense of lysergic, hazy melody.
Brutal and glimmering, dark and beautiful, Stand Up Before Me, Oh My Soul! drops loud and large in pursuit of pure dissonant bliss.
Stand Up Before Me, Oh My Soul! is the first in a new limited edition CD series from Preservation called Circa. 300 copies only will be available of each release in the series and each will feature a design by Mark Gowing. Each design will be realised using a specially created abstract alphabet of shapes, determined by artist, title and catalogue number for something both fixed and random.
