Ideal Recordings:

"Slow, methodical organ recordings on this major new work from Kali Malone; a quietly subversive double album featuring almost two hours of concentrated, creeping organ pieces governed by a strict acoustic and compositional code with ultimately profound emotional resonance.

'The Sacrificial Code' takes a more surgical approach to the methods first explored on last year's 'Organ Dirges 2016 - 2017'. Over the course of three parts performed on three different organs, Malone's minimalist process captures a jarring precision of closeness, both on the level of the materiality of the sounds and on the level of composition.The recordings involved here careful close miking of the pipe organ in such a way as to eliminate environmental identifiers as far as possible - essentially removing the large hall reverb so inextricably linked to the instrument. The pieces were then further compositionally stripped of gestural adornments and spontaneous expressive impulse - an approach that flows against the grain of the prevailing musical hegemony, where sound is so often manipulated, and composition often steeped in self indulgence. sentiment “..by voluntarily giving up the freedom to do whatever momentarily comes to mind, we are, as a result, freedom of all that momentarily comes to mind.”

With its slow, purified and seemingly austere qualities 'The Sacrificial Code' guides us through an almost trance-inducing process where we become vulnerable receptors for every slight movement, where every miniature shift in sound becomes magnified through stillness. satisfying exercise in transcendence through self restraint - a stunning realization of ideas borne out of academic and conceptual rigour which gradually reveals startling personal dimensions. the language of colorless musical platitudes we've become so accustomed to."
