Genre:    electronic
Style:               Field Recordings               Noise















Since 2005 recording music but generally Dotåbåtå move from noise to ambient, and rarelly make cassettes like this one here entitled "Crusty pineal". This tape has two long tracks (fiftheen minutes each one) and show the hability of the musician when is time to make field recordings. I feel like a lot of good writers sacrifice a disproportionate amount of life energy crafting perhaps a line or maybe even a single phrase that can really make their audience feel revitalized, moved, or inspired. Maybe that’s why Dotåbåtå has opted for a very hard right turn towards the area of field recordings, ambient and small noise doses than his former/current role as an experimental underground musician (of sorts).

"Escapism"
Year:     2010
Country:    Australia
City:    Melbourne
Artist:    Carey Knight
Label:    Cantankerous rec.
Format:    cassette
Edition:    47 copies
Lyrical themes:    anarchism , pacifism
Genre:    electronic
Style:                 Ambient               Drone















This is probably the farthest Dotåbåtå recording from noise and closer to musical styles such as ambient, drone, ritual, etc. and according to the author tt was did with very few artifacts: just an electric bass, some distortion pedals and little else. The result is a good ambient, quiet and calm which remind the names of this style but I personally prefer other Dotåbåtå works, more agressive and close to noise.

Lyrical themes:    anarchism , pacifism
Genre:    electronic
Style:               Noise            Drone















This split is definitely for those fans of drone who like their tracks infused with some harsher noise, and the tape should even appeal to those who have a fling for harsh noise walls. Both Torba and Dotåbåtå bring enveloping drones into the mix while also infusing each track with a great deal of harsh electronic manipulation, and it results in an exhilarating combination of melody and chaos.
