4 stars Unearthly ethnic electronics.

Giuseppe Verticchio's, a.k.a. NIMH, 2011 "Krungthep Archives ", travels through the obscure, white noise, strident electronics, as it is also poignantly focused on playing ethnical kind of tunes with their respective instrumentation, mostly Asian or Indian, alongside, live recordings of nature's sounds and some village's peasant life of what seems to be somewhere around those same places.

In this project's progressive mutation, back and forth between its musical directions and mixtures of musical languages and influences, what is constant is Giuseppe Verticchio's detailed and creative music songwriting. Even the unmusical white, harsh noise or its indistinct voices and chatters , are kept in size, unless the composition requires the opposite, without surrendering the spirit of "pure electronic experimentation", very much in the tenor of his own country (very) early electronic musicians. (Italy circa 1930.)

In fact that is exactly what makes this work "cinematic like" (without any kind of ST cliches, of course), the wide space given to each musical or noise direction. Unobtrussive to each other but linearly focused, as also imprinting each song with its own personality, yet parts of the whole project.

Rich in melodies and moods, yet abundant in its uncompromising sonic electronic textures!

****4.5 PA stars.
