  • Availability:

A double album released by London's emerging label Mana by Sa Pa, who also releases works from Giegling and MDR.Includes a wide range of 2 songs, from the rough-textured opening track to the floor-specific dubby track.

 

Mana:
Rain, spit, ice, neon, mercury, arcing electricity, plants, steam, soil, and dust; this is dream music from Sa Pa. Following up on his 2015 debut [Fuubutsushi], In A Landscape provides rich content for fantasy and the fertile imagination, establishing a rich terrain of visual, poetic, and abstract sound that draws on techno and dub ambient.

Somewhere between pastoral impressionism and cyber-noir, its surface evokes the tensions of a fluctuating, fizzing atmosphere, pictures emerging and displaying in the mind's eye. Thick layers of field recording --some salvaged from a recorder lost in Bassiani during the police raid last year and recovered in January --flood tracks black from erratic, oddly distanced rhythm.

The sensation whilst listening is not unlike hearing the world from a place within the body; swimming in the bloodstream, cutting through the turbulent landscape secure in a metal tube.

Or being over-exposed to lushly textured environments with the anatomy far receded; an out-of-body experience where subtler senses are heightened and the landscape begins to take on surreal qualities.
