Organum + Z'Ev Tinnitus Vu

Finally, a noise record dedicated to the wanderlust of tinnitus! Avant-industrial percussionist Z'ev collaborated with composer David Jackman (Organum) to make you realize just how disorienting yet addictive it is to leave a concert and have harmonious squeals smother your eardrums. Yet Tinnitus is easy listening. A soothing cloud of heavy reverb and flanged air drenches this 16-minute EP into a sleepwalking pace. Added to the ether are soft drones, sporadic piano chords, and light, clicking percussion that brushes like elm branches against the walls of a house. Since Z'ev and Jackman have probably lived with damaged ears for so long, this is their comfort music.
