I have always been a fan of Oliver Doerell's projects and he has yet to disappoint. This is completely different from Dictaphone or SWOD but it is equally splendid. Unlike anything I've ever heard. Fantastic.
Favorite track: z..
Cummi Flu is the latest persona of ever morphing, multi-media illusionist Oliver Doerell. Originating from Brussels, the analogue-electronic pioneer has been the driving force behind earlier incarnations Dictaphone and SWOD, as well as embodying the Odd Orchestra of Raz Ohara. Well-versed in downbeat electronics, Cummi Flu sees Doerell explore his acid-laced visions of psychedelic forms and frequencies.
The first recordings present a collection of sound collage cut-ups based on home-made instruments with self-tuned rubber bands and bass kalimba at its beating heart. The resulting tracks are an exploration into otherworldly rhythms with the rise and fall of a swollen tide.
Cummi Flu produces a hard to place sound, while at the same time preying on ancient feelings of estrangement, sanctuary and self-exploration.
