Mutually Arising by Greg Davis
Released: Jul 2009
Label: Kranky
In the tradition of Folke Rabe's What?! and Kevin Drumm's Imperial Horizon comes Greg Davis' breathtaking 2009 album Mutually Arising, a two-part, hour-long album that lives up to the track titles "Cosmic Mudra" and "Hall of Pure Bliss." Crafted principally from analog synths and effects pedals, its slow-burning thrum variously evokes pipe organs, overhead planes and third-gen tape dubs of Glenn Branca smothered with lead blankets, suggesting Richard Serra's monolithic forms filling Joseph Beuys' silent, felt-draped chambers. In the right frame of mind, it's bliss via IV drip.
