Marcelo Radulovich's third album, '2 Brains', is a special two CD set.
The first disc contains studio recordings of pieces composed, arranged and often
all performed by the artist. The second disc is a collection of sound art pieces
constructed from field recordings made by the artist over the past several years.
Like his self-titled debut CD, (ALP003, 1994), which received
airplay on over a hundred priority college stations, and its follow-up, To Lilliput
& Back volume one (ALP007, 1996), which garnered much critical
acclaim, this new work
-a great deal of it recorded in Holland where he lived and collaborated with various
artists- showcases Marcelo Radulovich's multi-instrumental, multi-faceted and
multicultural approach to music or more precisely, manipulation of sound.
"...a wonderful noisey, complex demented album brimming with ideas..."
Jeremy Keens, Ampersand Etcetera
"Una de las grandes obras musicales de esta década."
Carlos Jauregui, Margen
"Two discs of the kind of low-fi sonic diaper-play that the world would be FAR better for, or better with or by or...whatever the preposition...'it would be leaps and bounds better if this stuff got PLAYED IN PUBLIC PLACES -and I don't mean just malls and supermarkets and baseball stadia, I mean street corners and fire stations and pissoirs at the beach and over crackling loudspeakers in garbage-strewn picnic areas in every state (and national) park and certainly the church, temple, ashram, or synagogue of your choice. And in Death Valley and the state of Connecticut NORTH OF BRIDGEPORT.
Played in such places so you would have to hear it. Thus improving forever the quality of your life. Or maybe not low-fi: low-definition. A lot of "details" are hard to access. You don't always know exactly what you're hearing in the way of words or even sources -where or whence the sounds are coming from...their ambient "context."
And sometimes low-fi -of lower qual, both technologically and auditorily, than has to be: lower on purpose. Which, to this critic's thinking, can't be beat as a "concept." What the hell would beat it?
Although maybe you don't WANT the world to be a better place...a shame, but it's your
call...nobody's forcing you.
"....The second album is completely different. It acts on an audio level the same way as a collection of holiday snaps do - it's a record of a life, of a passage through various points in our world at various moments in the life of the composer. Oh, yes, this sort of thing has been done before many times - location recordings juxtaposed and untreated, strung together and sold to the listener as 'Art'. JIM O'ROURKE's done it, BRUCE GILBERT's done it - hell, THE HAFLER TRIO are renouned for their location recording montages. But here, somehow, the artist has got it right. I listened to this happily, with a feeling that life was 'out there' beyond the dank dungeon walls of MJ's ex-Inquisition Reviewing Cell. It's kinda voyeuristic without being sleazy, vox pop without the mindless opinionating, memory associations for the composer only, but accessible, even welcoming to the consumer. Someone should tell all the others who think they're being original - it's been done, RADULOVICH did it - move on!"
