liner notes: Guaranteed psychoactive! Psychedelic Mountain is what Swiss sax-man Christoph Merki calls the new programme by Music.01, his seven-piece ensemble. And it takes a full two albums to contain the product, after three years of work. An idiosyncratic sonic universe, a synthesis of minimal, jazz, ambient, prog-rock and contemporary classic. Two lyrical wind players lay down some gentle lines while three harmonic instruments (marimbaphone, Fender Rhodes and piano) weave a glowing fabric of delicate, indeed exquisite notes. Then there are also filigreed drum beats and a groovy electric bass. There are loops to be heard. But those loops donâEURTMt preclude a surprising harmonic cornucopia! In the end itâEURTMs all super suggestive. Think of Steve Reich, of Tony Banks from the legendary prog-rock outfit Genesis, of classical musicians like György Ligeti, of ambient man Aphex Twin. All at the same time. âEUR" Psychedelic Mountain? Get high on the music!
