When We Were Eating Unripe Pear
I discovered Bee Mask through Donato Dozzy’s Plays Bee Mask
he created all from Bee Mask’s Vaporware
. This album was my first introduction
to his work and it’s quite the trip. I will leave a section of the Bandcamp
because it gives the story of this album from Madak himself.
The seven pieces on this LP were
developed over a period of about five years; Rain in Coffee is built on a
Hyperborean Trenchtown-era demo, while Pinq Drinq — sorrel, for the record, and
neither guava nor antacid as certain wags have already ventured — was
reanimated directly from the cutting room floor, eleventh hour twenty-twelve.
As a whole, they should probably be considered the proper "sequel"
to Canzoni dal Laboratorio del Silenzio Cosmico, extending that record's
preoccupation with the dream interiors of post-1965 Fellini and synthesizing
(pun very much NOT intended) it with Elegy for Beach Friday's fascination with
the lush and abject facets of advanced gastronomy and the embrace of the
recursive, solipsistic, simultaneously expansive and claustrophobic universe of
the sampler on Vaporware/Scanops.
