MY CAT IS AN ALIEN - 'What Space
Is Made For'
Instantaneous composers, performers and audiovisual artists, Italian brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, aka My Cat Is An Alien (MCIAA), introduce humans to their new creation: 'What Space Is Made For' is the first step in the new parallel universe they call 'multi-layered instantaneous composition'. Their highly original music has been brilliantly celebrated as staggering sound sculptures, mesmerizing trance-state minimalism, impressionistic noise, pure hallucination of dislocated inputs and outputs, a haunting ambient mantra, cathartic tribalism, a visionary voyage through three millennia of cosmic music. The truth is that MCIAA sound like nothing else in music now and ever.
The monumental set 'What Space Is Made For' has been recorded in their secret base on the Western Alps, and unlike MCIAA's previous works, it's mostly made of short pieces and songs. In addition to their (un)usual instrumentation (electric and acoustic guitars, space toys, percussion), MCIAA have self-made, modified, and assembled / disassembled primitive electronic equipment. So the result may sound their most 'experimental' as well as their most 'accessible' work to date.
An alternate edit of the song 'The Antigravitational
Sense Of Nothingness' is featured on the WIRE TAPPER
25 CD compilation, that comes attached to April 2011 issue
of The Wire magazine.
