Item description

Forms Of Things Unknown - Cross Purposes [Remastered, Extra Track] 2008 CD, Panaxis Records/Pimalia. Forms Of Things Unknown (FOTU) is an acoustic/electronic project dedicated to pan-idiomatic explorations beyond the pale of sectarian orthodoxies, being the brainchild and primary creative enterprise of San Francisco composer/multi-instrumentalist Ferrara Brain Pan. FOTU is essentially a solo endeavor, with occasional assistance from a fluctuating cast of like-minded artistic colleagues. Ferrara Brain Pan is a windplayer whose instrumental abilities range from Western orchestral woodwinds such as flutes, saxophones, bass clarinet and recorders to such ethnic instruments as the didjeridu, shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute), and kangling (ritual Tibetan trumpet made from a human thighbone). Harmonium, bowed psaltery, percussion, and digital/analog electronic elements further enrich the instrumental palette of Forms Of Things Unknown. Ferrara Brain Pan's checkered musical career includes early collaborations with noise music pioneer Boyd Rice a/k/a NON (1970s), the mercifully short-lived goth-damage fiasco Bad Alchemy (80s), ambient dub project 23 Degrees (early 90s), and a fortuitous uncredited appearance on 1994’s Rien by Krautrock legends Faust. In 1998, Ferrara Brain Pan co-founded the dark ambient duo Darmstadt Pharmacy with Ure Thrall, initiating a collaborative association which persists intermittently to the present day. This is the newly REMASTERED version of FOTU's 2003 first release, 'CROSS PURPOSES' that includes an extra track. This first release was mixed and produced from material played entirely by Ferrara Brain Pan, excepting guest vocal performances by local talents Bob Ayres and Shannon Wolfe. A study in contradictions, the album featured a 16-minute original instrumental doomscape entitled “Black Candles Pentagrams ‘n h!t,” paired off against a 14th-Century devotional Christian song and a cover of the morally ambiguous “Stupid Blood” (penned by UK punk legend Howard Devoto). The improved sound quality of this remastered version is impressive. So is the extra track- "Mesozoica", a mini-masterpiece of Dark Ambience. This CD should have broad-based appeal to fans of Boyd Rice, Coil, Controlled Bleeding, Current 93, Death In June, Lustmord, Nurse With Wound, Raison d'tre, Tuxedo Moon and other experienmtal/dark ambient/neoclassical artists. RECOMMENDED! CD comes in a tri-fold digipack and is BRAND NEW. Tracks: 1. Black Candles Pentagrams 'N Shit, Pt. 1: Risen, The Judas Moon 2: Errant Bodies 3. Mariam Matrem: Instrumental 4. Mariam Matrem: Vocal 5. Stupid Blood 6. Mesozoica (Previously Unreleased Bonus Track)
