Pat Moonchy has been performing for twenty years as a dj and experimental musician. she is an existentialist and versatile personality in a state of constant evolution; a developer of an intensely personal musical language. she first played the electric bass, then non-western philosophies inspired further self evolution and she explored vocal techniques – harmonic singing and circular breathing. as her interest in electronic music grew she learned to play the theremin with barbara buchholz. she also runs the club, The Moonshine, in Milan. All these tracks are really great, and stand as fine examples of wayward abstract and concrète music. "blood pink noise" is described as experimental abstract by the label "Pan y Rosas", but these ten pieces do lurk at the edges of that genre. Nevertheless, they are very clearly coming from that context, and are thoroughly recommended to experimental and musique concrète fans. All pieces generate interesting atmospheres and are technically fascinating for their use and treatment of human voice and instrumentts (or objects): the almost microscopic presence of crackle on Origin, the very clear deployment of low end wall rumble on Topic of the Veil. It’s a very compelling release and an artist to definitely check out her other recordings.
