RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL 

ZABRISKIE POINT 

ULTRA RARE 2000 CD  CENCD 027/ Centaur Discs  /UK 

 

 

While Radio Massacre International didn't invent the vocabulary of spacemusic, they certainly do know how to use it. On their album Zabriskie Point, RMI offers us a window into one of music's 

most intimate experiences, the free-form jam. A notation for this style of music does not exist. 

The musicians must have the ability to "feel" their way through. It is through these kinds of sessions that musicians bond and demonstrate an almost telepathic connection with their collaborators.Without any rhythm, harmony or melody to speak of, the listener becomes absorbed and lost in RMI's reference less sonic spell.

Dark analog synthtones color the mood, carefully played electric piano notes speak of place and the ever present processed guitar, wailing, churning, moaning and breathing its accents and leads stretches the elasticity of the session. As with the basic nature of electronic music, Zabriskie Point too uses only timbre to bring the listener into their fragile aural space.

The highlight is the 2nd track, which clocks in at 52.33 minutes! Ashra like guitar is much in evidence here, as the boys surpass themselves (and everyone else) in constructing one of the finest tracks I've ever heard. 

It's swamp music but played in the desert! Layers of guitar effects, synth textures, pads and the usual splooshes etc that one is used to from RMI, but it just never becomes boring… Hell! just listen to this thing. I think I must be losing it…. to like an album devoid of sequencing as much as I do this one.
