Gnome & Spybey :: Three (Crime League)

A very personal musical topography which represents the most abstract-kinetic facet of ambient music with its mysteriously compelling, absorbing, droning and sonorous tendencies.

Well established artist for having published a few standards in the field of groundbreaking and chilling post techno ambient, Michael Morton (alias Displacer) is also a producer and the founder of the independent label The Crime League. This label approaches various activities (as design agency, electronic music publisher) connected all together and deeply rooted in Displacer’s musical heritage. The musical catalog is opened to a wide diversity of electronic music genres, from spacey ambient to chillout electronica and IDM, always bringing to the fore a plural, dynamic view on sound experiments and textures.

Published in a limited physical edition, Three is a new amazing album which consists of a musical reunion between two notorious figures of the underground music scene: Mark Spybey (who is currently working under the monikers of Dead Voices on Air and Propeller. Also highly considered for his innovative-pioneering efforts in the post industrial experimentalist Zoviet France) and Tony D’Oporto (a talented and skilled electronic artist, polyvalent and multifaceted sound creator notably known for his project Gnome, Gnomes of Kush, as well as for his collaborations with Mark Spybey). This second album published together is an honest excursion into dense, buzzing and sonically haunted electronic sound sculptures. The whole album admits some really outstanding and brilliant alchemical restful moments which are deliberately taking distance from the most uncompromising and challenging post industrial moments of :Zoviet*France:, Coil et al. The musical architecture is focused on blissful, majestic and almost cosmic-droning synthesized waves (somewhere between Richard Lainhart and Biosphere with dark and long waving melodious synth motives) and processed voices punctuate the sound signature and absolutely retain the attention of the listener. Three is a fundamental, strangely, almost sci-fi cybernetic and menacing electronic release. A very personal musical topography which represents the most abstract-kinetic facet of ambient music with its mysteriously compelling, absorbing, droning and sonorous tendencies.

Three is available on Crime League. [Release page]
