Atrabilis Sunrise

 

 

heathenharvest (august 2009)

Atrabilis must be connected with “atrabile” term or “black melancholy” and Snoezelen (or controlled multisensory stimulation) is a kind of treatment, used for people with autism and other developmental disabilities, dementia, and brain injury and involves exposing them to a soothing and stimulating environment, the "snoezelen room". These rooms are specially designed to deliver stimuli to various senses, using lighting effects, color, sounds, music, scents, etc. The term "snoezelen" is formed from the Dutch "snuffelen" (to sniff, to snuffle) and "doezelen" (to doze, to snooze). Weird things that deal with psycho issues and mental diseases always drew heightened interest.

Atrabilis Sunrise is a French band, formed by Pascal Bourdon (aka Padre P.C., who is also known for Catharsis and Taedium Vitae projects) in the beginning of this century and that issued its first CD on Padre P.C.'s label P.C.M.. Actually Snoezelen Room Larks was first issued on P.C.M. as well, in 2006, and 3 patttes reissued it in 2008 as a limited edition of 103 piece, each handnumbered. The artwork on the cover is done by a person called Nuvish and cover design is done by (dell.tree).

Sound varies from unbearable noise filled with the spirit of hysterical violent madness to deep glitch, clicks’n’cuts fragements, from hypnotizing with its monotony ambient patterns like Metrazol Antagony to rather melodical, although still heavy things like ICD-10:F60 in which one has to feel the rhythm. To create the soundscapes Padre P.C.uses quite a number of devices, from samplers, synths and fx units to electric guitars, toy pianos, music boxes, generators as well as things like cans, bones and objects made of different materials in order to create rhythmic patterns for the tracks. I’d like to mark out Snoezelen Rooms Larks and Könvulsiv Effekt , both very melodical and powerful martial tracks, although the first one is much more melodical (the solo melody line is presented by distorted sound) and the second one is rather noisy. So the diversity of sound types made me recall the title of the album: the album is like the room with different colours and textures, however these are impossible to touch, but hear and feel, they stimulate our listening ability, make nervous system respond in different ways to the sounds of different types and different volume. Let us feel being sane.

The French Touch (february 2009)

Atrabilis Sunrise est à la base un projet solo du bidouilleur Padre P.C., le genre de travail qu'il aime à mener au fond d'une cave et à distribuer par lui-même à ses amis et connaissances. "Snoezelen room larks" illustre bien cette attitude, puisque le musicien l'avait publié en 2006 par ses propres moyens, à cinquante exemplaires. Aujourd'hui, le label 3Patttes, toujours premier sur l'audace et ne reculant devant aucune dépense, réédite cet album à 103 exemplaires. Une bonne raison pour découvrir cet artiste qui navigue aux frontières de l'ambiant, de l'indus et du noise pur et dur. Des tréfonds des sous-bassements de la demeure du Padre montent des volutes de bruits sordides, des nappes de mélodies hachées qui tentent de sauver leurs membres avant de se les faire découper en morceaux. La folie rôde, imprégnant les cris de son influence mortifère. L'humain peine à se différencier de l'animal, la machine de l'organique. Un visiteur occasionnel tomberait sans doute sur un hybride entre les deux mondes, un corps de primate d'où sortent des pistons et des câbles électriques, mais dont l'oeil conserve encore un lointain souvenir d'humanité. Tel est l'univers d'Atrabilis Sunrise, constitué de mutations perverses et d'engeances contre-nature, de quasi-silences éthérés et de violence psychopathe. Si l'obscurité ne vous effraie pas, si vous n'avez pas peur des rencontres qui défie toute classification, "Snoezelen room larks" est fait pour vous. (jeudi 5 février 2009)
