The latest release from Seattle's Reita Piecuch is a limited edition 8" lathe cut and DVD.
Dialing In specialises in super saturated dark psychedelic drones crafted from field recordings, voice and protesting electronics. Instruments are pushed way out into the lush fiery regions of 'the red', the result not so much 'noise' as fuzzy blissed out near death experience. Piecuch's aesthetic vision skates precariously close to the edge.
We'd long been impressed by the striking cover art Reita has produced for her previous releases (an LP on Music Fellowship and an earlier CD on PseudoArcana (see further down the list) and so were very excited when she started posting videos on her DialingInSounds youtube channel early in 2013. We were even more excited when Reita agreed to let us collate some of these for a DVD to accompany this record.
Her video work melds perfectly with her music, finding beauty at the very edge upon which the world itself decays, where consciousness disintegrates into a flicker of remembered images.
There is something Zen like in her celebration of this darkest of nexus points on the cycle of life and awareness.
