At once archaic, ancient and alchemic, Origami Arktika seem to come from another age, or at least walk between the ages. Their music appears timeless, part of their inner and outer landscape and deeply indebted to their natural surroundings.
Bass then starts to propel the song and sawing bowed strings come together to create a virtual maelstrom of a track. Cinematic and hugely evocative, make no mistake; this is widescreen music. At times the Norwegian folk idiom seems to resemble to the Gaelic and Scottish Western Isles laments; the traditional yet instinctive phrasing and sense of melancholy and yearning bears close relation.
Dulcimer shimmers and echoes throughout the shadows; there is something altogether pagan and otherworldly at work here that steps outside of modern music. It is both ritualistic and profound and is truly mesmerising in it sparse power. Disturbing and thrilling; this is music that follows only its own path. Bowed guitar and hushed vocals add to the brooding atmosphere, at once intense yet also hugely exciting and not unlike like finding yourself under a massive thunderstorm.
This is experiential music. An eleven minute epic, the song holds the tension expertly throughout. This track feels like the album's lynchpin and contains the vital elements of Arktika, namely the organic and adventurous spirit that underlines their aesthetic and approach as well as their able grasp of dynamics and hugely affecting atmospheric soundscapes. The sense of barren beauty and windswept landscape lingers long after however.
There is supposedly a myriad of players in Origami Arktika and the revolving door collective not only contain musicians but filmmakers and painters and poets. Yet this is a cohesive and standout album with its own identity and sense of unique purpose. Walk out into the storm; spend some time with Origami Arktika. This, I would suggest, is what can happen when a band seem to overstretch themselves — the music works very effectively on its own but throughout at least the first half of Absolut Gehor the vocals and lyrics often seem to oppose rather than complement the instrumentation, although folk musicians the world over very often do similar things.
The first half of the album is deceptively experimental, verging on atonal, and when they do decide to turn into a more conventional rock band the results are made all the more notable. Absolut Gehor will require more than one listen to allow its listeners to decide exactly what it is Origami Arktika are really about. I cite Morphogenesis' first release the cassette-only impossible-to-find eponymous relic as a brilliant example of the former and Merzbow as perhaps ne plus ultras of the latter.
Depending on what your preferences are—to be captivated and pulled into new windows on old mysteries Morphogenesis or to be deafened and go insane Merzbow —you choose your music accordingly. Let him caterwaul out in the cold and dark, he likes it like that, while you submerge into a spooky realm of tintinnablua, coruscations, echoes, buzzlines, ghosting presences, and arcane whatnots smiling uneasily out at you from pagan alcoves.
At first, the intrusion of vocalist Rune Flaten is a bit jarring, somewhat distimbrally sitting atop everything, transposing the forbidding instrumental scenario into a sonic version of an old Bergman flick meditating upon medievality and ritualistics. The ensemble's Norwegian origins have much to do with this, not to mention that the progressive musics of upper Europe are oft achingly austere, and the juxtaposition first of the spacey with the terrene, next interposing what stands between them man , flattens out the foreground sonic field, forcing attention to verite vocal that are at first stark, later subtle, while layering up the music behind.
Swatches of quiet Klaus Schulze, wickerman Third Ear Band, Pink Floyd's softened and arabesqued organ sections, chloroformed Godspeed You Black Emperor, and other influences coil about the inky recesses, harking back in certain ways to Eno's seminal On Land but with a much more sinister—manneredly so! Though modulations rise and fall throughout, everything builds up to the sixth cut, Det Syng for Storegut, commencing in a disarming rock format before the guazy quagmire rises again to meet it.
If seems a sopored-out Dario Argento had slipped into the back of the studio to mingle with Bergman, taking his Goblin norms down several notches.
