about this cd: opinions, tracks,

"It's combination of electronic sounds and altered human screams is a frightening
listening experience." (Dogbowl
"Loads of sonic explorations, and noises and elements
collide to create dense, complete soundscapes! Odd rhythms, intense ambience,
darkwave sub-level grooves ... Sometimes a Kosmische organ crescendos,
or looped arpeggios peep in, to give it all that definitive hypnotic touch,
too." (Alexander E. Wheill)
"A very interesting combination
of neo-primitivism and sonic experimentalism." (Cohort Records)

"I have taken it with me on my daily walk and
listened on my Walkman. I would say 'Death
in the library' is my current favorite. I love the looped sample
of the footsteps walking on the creaking, wood floor. Nice effect
for rhythm. ... I enjoy your tape very much ..."
"I pulled out your tape again and took it with
me on my walk yesterday. We moved in January to a new apartment and
so I go on my daily walks in a new place. It's nice, it's along the
bay in Newport Beach, lots of wildlife (rabbits, squirrels, birds, snakes,
even coyotes!). Your music on Her
Closed Eyes is good mood music for such walks."(Michael
Martin) "This Industrial/Hard Techno song from Lithuania's ENDICHE
VIS.SAT is disturbing, to say the least! It's very experimental, and provocative!"
"Prolific Lithuanian group present an hour of
involving collages, haunted melodic fragments, bizarre musical phrases,
and surrealistic moments into fascinating pieces." (J. de
"... acquaintance with this work was a very interesting
experience for me; a symptom about changes in our society ... I am happy
to feel the pulse that I was missing." (Linas Vyliautas)
"... breathe new life into the tired old term
'industrial noise' manipulation. ... the latest from this Lithuanian band
who play chaotic industrial noise, crowded by looped chants and pieces
of music, with prehistoric videogame beeps and insane no-wave feelings
here and there. Pretty weird, indeed." (Alexander E. Wheill)
"Listened to 'Her
Closed Eyes' today and liked it very much. I've heard nothing like
it yet." (Cohort Records)
"Mostly instrumental, well constructed and nice
to hear." (Slav-Core)
"Unique dark/ritual/avantgarde." (Beverina
"... really good." (Dorella Bruno)
Letter from listener
I've listened to this tape several times by now
and I wanted to send you some feedback.
Before we moved I took this tape with me on my
daily 3 mile walk (for exercise). This gave me a very good opportunity
to listen closely as the music became a "soundtrack" for my walks around
The opening track "Saturn" has a very urgent,
almost militant sound with it's looped percussion and howling vocals.
It is a very powerful opener as it grabs the listener's attention right
away. I enjoy trying to figure out what some of the sounds I'm hearing
are. One sound in particular reminds me of a sprinkler as it quickly
sprays water across the grass of a field. Very well done.
in the library" ... is a favorite of mine. The sounds of those
heavy (boots?) pacing back and forth on a creaky, (wooden?) floor are excellent
for their abstract rhythm. This one has a very nice, haunting, gradual
build to it that gives it a dense, ominous feel. I like the single
notes that chime in semi-regularly and then gradually fade out, almost
like a slowed-down, chiming second hand on the clock. (I hope that
makes sense.) The looped piano riff playing underneath it all adds
a very dark, trance-inducing feel. And I keep coming back to those
great walking boot sounds! I hear this track as a musical accompaniment
to someone's tortured mind as they repeatedly pace back and forth, unsure
of what they are going to do next. Great!
"The Rest" is a very good layered, drone piece.
I stopped writing for a couple of minutes right now to just close my eyes
and listen. I could make out a very faint sound of someone speaking,
although unintelligibly. And it sounds like that "sprinkler sound"
makes another appearance. The short, looped sound I hear sounds like
it could be sheep going "baa" over and over, although I'm sure that's only
my interpretation based on my imagination.
Jump; Her Closed Eyes" is quite nice to hear with eyes closed.
A very well done ambient piece. Dark and sinister, yet mellow, sort
of like it was "chill-out beat-less industrial for not-dancing to" (or
something like that). This would be very good music to provide a
soundtrack for a film. Are you familiar with the "Dead Cities" album
by Future Sound of London? This piece of yours reminds me very much
of the feel and sound of that album. Great textures and loops; I
can hear a dark tension in this piece.
"Krishnamurti's renounce" sounds to me almost
like walking into a mad scientist's laboratory on acid and thinking that
his lab experiments have all come to life and are breaking loose.
One looped portion sounds like a computer "on the fritz" (this means "going
crazy") as it tries to process confusing data. This is the sound
of hectic mayhem that refuses to let up until near the end where it leads
into more of a free-jazz improv section. I like this ending as it combines
the sounds of horn, bass, piano and high-pitched screeching. It stands
out from the rest of the tape and makes for a nice transition to end with.
Overall I enjoy this tape very much. It
has proved to be a very nice little escape into abstract sounds and noises,
sort of like an audio-trip or an aural journey. Any chance Endiche
vis.sat will make a trip to play in America?
