Review about EXurban by Luis aka Gift of vision:
“..These two artist bring more than an empty space composition cliche, actually they discover a forgotten world, a world that is there but nobody notices it anymore… or anybody wants to notice…
..and it is because watching the photos, it inmediately takes you to a walk tru the corridors, the rooms and halls. And the questions come to surface in a second: What happened here? What kind of people was attended in this room? Was it an injuried soldier? A happy pregnant mother giving birth? An old man waiting for the last breath of his life? While the walk continues on every picture, a feeling of sadness, solitude, forgotten, depressive and nostalgic when the sun tries in vain to warm these rooms, and a mistery around it is overpassing the eyes, mind and hearth of the expectator, but… stop walking is not a choice. at the same time thousands of questions will remain with no answer: Why this place is not used anymore? Why they dont just tear it down and build a new thing? Does anybody cares about this place?
All that dust, rusty, broken windows and wide empty spaces just remain quiet with memories of echoes, voices and situations that happened there and no one will tell. Even worse for my hearth: the minimalistic background sounds makes me going down, keeping my hearth cold, hopeless for an answer and fitting to my heartbeat and unexpected noises turns my skin with goosebumps not of scary, but yes: for emptyness.
I loved it, yes, this travel took me to the basement of my own personal ghosts and took me back to reality, I would recommend to everyone to have this travel and find their own basements without the classical gothic way for personal suffering: just real places, real pictures and the real noises in your head. I will be waiting for the next walk.
In this release of the german collective EXurban, crossover by two influent projects of the electronic german music scene, we find some sort of aproaching between languages as, for an instance, dark ambient, electronica, musique concrete, field recordings, electroacustic music, idm, downtempo, and so on.
An ecletic experience, to see, taste, smell and listen. Recommended!…”
“With the project “EXurban” we began to deal with the photographic/visual realisation of experimental contents and ex-urban rooms as basis for our musical soundscapes. We are associating our impressions of forgotten places (e.g. abandoned hospitals or factories) with multiple media, for example music, photography and film, and recording real-sound (field recording) from those places to bring such noises and “silence”-sounds into one, comprehensible media to share this and to present our emotions and pictures in our minds. Other states, e.g. the state of mind or medical states, are focused in this project. The last component of our work is the integration of our self written texts and lyric.”
“The MAKROLID EP describes a process of an antibiosis with one sort of antibiotics called Makrolid. The order of the tracks characterizes the real process of the anastasis in four states. The translation of this anastasis into a process of the inner state of mind is the most significant aspect for us in this context.” – Clinical Archives
