The Mighty Acts of God - Joy of the Mountain (Ruralfaune, 2007)

Je ne suis pas systématiquement fan de ce que sort Ruralfaune (je vous renvoie à mon commentaire sur Twins d'il y a quelques jours). Pourtant j'aime le label pour son flair, son côté tête chercheuse. Avant d'être saluée pour les disque sortis sur son propre label ou sur Kye, Vanessa Rossetto explorait les entrailles de son violon sous le nom de the Mighty Acts of God. Une musique exigeante qui saura récompenser l'auditeur patient!

Note : Vanessa Rossetto is an American composer, improviser and painter. She uses primarily chamber instrumentation, field recordings, electronics and a wide array of different objects exploring them through extended and traditional techniques and other methods of her own devising.
With previous albums on the lovely MYMWLY label Rossetto has built up a following for her peculiar smudged weird-folk sound which rests somewhere in the Jewelled Antler spectrum. Lesser-known instruments are tortured lovingly while metal objects clank together or are dragged across wooden floors to create walls of hazy sound. It's almost impossible to try and put your finger on what you're actually hearing as everything is submerged in a mist of noise and tape hiss, the recording process becoming the final (and sometimes central) instrument. These are dense and beautiful passages of darkened sound, at once both shadowy and full of hope and the more you listen the more your mind is free to strip back the layers of noise and reveal the beautiful, fragile songs inside.
