Comment: by theoretical side, this issue is interesting to quest. What does it mean Appalachian Anatolia and how it harks back to the 14th century? And how it is relevant today? Furthermore, it consists of one, prolonged track played on guitar by Clara de Asis yet being modified by the Swiss electronic musician d'incise. If I had understood it in a proper way it can considered a collaborative issue though being collaborated separately. A second way to understand it is that d`incise modified the composition for electric guitar beforehand and de Asis played it. In fact, by reading a d`incise`s interview it can be assumed the second version is right. Musically it is a lengthy, 41-minute composition based on guitar induced progressions and discontinuations (which does mean silent spans in between). Yet silence is an invisible conversation as declaimed Malcolm Mooney in a song of CAN. It is also about arousing and fading, about being and no existence and tight relation between the two. The effect of such a sort of production is strongly purgative as if getting small devils out of your tortured soul (because the world around us seems to be sick in the way as it has never been before). Human being as a stupid animal rejects God and thinks of himself/herself that he/she is a God instead but the result is pitiful. All the time the same jokes, all the time the same mistakes? No no. In fact, these mistakes used to become even worse in time. Miserable. Give up life as a bad mistake. The release is a part of the discography of INSUB., previously known as Insubordinations, an imprint to have represented improvised music.
