"After the solo album 'PATHS OF THE ERRANT GAZE' in 2016 Reinier van Houdt returns to Hallow Ground with IGITUR CARBON COPIES - an album based on the unfinished gothic tale IGITUR - a collection of texts that eventually was abandoned by its author Stéphane Mallarmé in 1869. Connecting with Mallarmé's obsessions about chance and destiny, IGITUR CARBON COPIES is the fragmentation of all the roots that ran under its predecessor PATHS OF THE ERRANT GAZE and brings these to a provisional close: guided by David Tibet's voice reading the reworked text we descend through spheres of deserted anthems, disembodied voices, morse signals, crank calls, corroded tapes, radio statics, stones, while doing counting games. Here the acoustical spaces are manifold, blended or shifted in a heartbeat, where far and near, up and down are relative, where Riemann's god is pointless and angels are enjoying their space. Here perception is a vice that constantly hallucinates realities." (label info) 180gr clear vinyl
