Comment: Golgotha Communications Ltd is a collective from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA whose 14-track issue continues the artist's peripheral and uncompromising tendencies within the post-industrial scene. And the imprint is very proper fro that – Arnaud Barbe aka Pollux led Sirona-Records. More profoundly, it is filled in with repeated sounds, with a minimized approach to make the listener to be subjugated to certain sounds and certain sonic combinations. Indeed, the listener can discern shifts between harsh yet easy-going shapes and remarkably more strained noise drenched sounds and rough sonic effects as if coming out from a very tiny slot. Mind-provoking and challenging. By following and analysing the title it can be interpreted in different ways – it is indeed a sort of music which does not exist anymore after it is performed (the sort of acousmatic music). If the repeat button is switched off it will not be heard through earphones and speakers. And if it will be repeated again the listener`s perception will perceive it differently because of being alien and involving way too many elements to be remembered in the same way. Secondly, it can be interpreted as a sort of anti-music in terms of pop music. It is way too radical for the bourgeois` scene. It may even involve some “comfort” sounds but they are subjugated to algorithms having nothing in common with the pop scene. It is protestant and it is painful. And it is very impressive.
