"Born out of creative empathy and chance, Organ Eye were formed at a concert of David Maranha (Osso Exótico) and Minit (Jasmine Guffond & Torben Tilly), which took place at the ZDB Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal, at the end of February 2005. With the addition of Patrícia Machás (like Maranha also a member of Osso Exótico), the quartet that now forms Organ Eye was completed and in March and December of 2006, they recorded their eponymous debut album. The two long tracks that comprise this first album equally reflect the qualities of the two contributing sides ­ Minit's loop-driven fragmented melancholic electronics and the sombre medieval acoustic drone studies of Maranha and Machás. Despite its monolithic nature there is still a lot of detail, and repeated listening will reveal a moody unfixed world of miniature vibrations, harmonics and noise ­ both machine-made and organic. There are also moments of great serenity and at times a sense of directionlessness that allows space to breath. Organ Eye is a turn towards a live improvised form that neither parties have explored on record before. With the structural looseness of simultaneous solo-ing, it could also be described as "a kind of free jazz". The musicians themselves reference Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray" as well as Buddhism, Albert Ayler and "an element of doom metal". Organ Eye is a volatile rocket of intense drone-mutation, fleeting sonic ghosts and suspended feedback on the brink of implosion. 44 minutes of vitriolic electric-acoustic drone. The outward and the inward eye." (label info)
