ARUM LILIES is Mark Groves's (Australian artist) Noise Power-Electronics solo project.
And "Dismal Fantasies" is his debut album under this moniker.
The new P/E sounds coming from the southern emisphere.
Released December 12, 2017
Cold, uncomfortable, heavy electronics. "...one of the more disturbing,
unsettling releases we have heard in a while... uncomfortable,
minimalist noise, very deep drones, death industrial atmospheres and
sounds that mimic marginally tuning antique radios and half-effective LP
players with old, crackling records. We don’t listen to this music
because it’s beautiful. We do so because there is a comfort in
discomfort, because sometimes we are attracted to that which evokes
images that are often on at the dark horizon of our imagination. Dismal
Fantasies totally fits that mold successfully. Disturbing. Unsettling.
(The Noise Beneath The Snow).
"Dismal Fantasies was recorded in the heat of Melbourne’s summer.
Clammy evenings spent manipulating a dusty Tascam 424 MKII while drinking cheap white wine and beer in front of a fan that may be audible in quieter passages.
An attempt to progress an earlier line, Arum Lilies takes processes and themes established when working on the Von Einem recordings, and repositions them.
Source matter has been drawn from a wider geographic range, and the tone more intimate."
