A diagonal chance encounter – chromatic undergrowth blossoming to a myriad tints of inner weatherings.
Formations, fields, densities gather and dissipate. Outwards inverted, spiralling across.
Orange dawn flowers upon the temple of the addicts. Radiating motionless fire. Sipping the morphium of the aether.
Choir of the undertow and the roots of the air.

“There is a link between these two releases, and that is Primož Bončina. He is the musician on the first CD, and he’s the label boss on the second. I had not heard of Neža Naglič, who plays prepared piano and objects. Bončina plays electric guitar, HP200CD oscillator and electronics. The eight pieces on Inner Weather were recorded in Naglič’s living room between 28/12/2019 and 8/3/2020. The music has quite a direct feeling as if this is a concert recording. I guess the sound is picked up from the living room, adding to the vibrancy of the recording. There is a bit of reverb, creating a bigger space to let these sounds sparkle around. The music stems from the world of improvisation, but it also touches upon a few other things. Naglič’s piano is at times quite melodic, almost like she’s a member of The Necks, but at other times she has lengthy passages in which she uses a lot of objects on the strings, resonating through the reverb. Bončina does something similar with his guitar. Plucking a string here and there, but just as easily goes into a dark modus, full of atmosphere. And that’s the keyword in these pieces, atmosphere. Perhaps it’s the, at times, cavernous use of reverb, but also the execution of these pieces. Sounds linger on for a while, in a long sustain, with sound not absent, but also not all too present; this duo creates some resonating space between the notes. Suppose improvised music is not necessarily your thing, but you’d wish some of your atmospheric drones were a bit livelier, perhaps more daring. In that case, this is something you should certainly investigate. The music on offer on this release is a bit of many things (electro-acoustic, improvisation, atmosphere and even a bit of noise, in Alien Ethnologies, Pt. 2) and finds crossroads that not a lot of people have found before. Not the easiest music to digest, but an excellent trip all around.” / Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly, 25 October 2022
