Urna - _VII_
(Independent, 2010)
by: Chaim Drishner (no rating - potential primitivism)
Urna's music resembles embryonic stem cells; it's empty in itself, yet full of possibilities, and even though it is comprised of many building blocks, many instruments and sounds, it is still very embryonic and unripe. Like these wondrous stem cells, that have the potential to fully become many other specialized cells with a specific function; even though the possibilities in that sense are virtually endless, Urna choses to stay in the embryonic state and never develop. Belonging to the dark ambient category (which in most cases isn't dark nor atmospheric by any means), the soundscapes on this recording refuse to develop, to progress and show any kind of attachment to the human soul, like an endless humming, or a field recording of random sounds of a distant thunder storm (oh, and an occasional tambourine and some undecipherable chants). The self-proclaimed ritual, religious, psychedelic or esoteric qualities are absent most of the time; most of the musical instruments claimed to have been used on the recording are not heard at all. The only quality present is primitivism. The music is as primitive as a stem cell, in the sense it is primal, waiting for a sign to develop and fully acknowledge the wonders it holds in store: add an instrument, add a voice, become part of creation and its beauty instead of reveling in its own earthbound grime. It's time to swim out of the primordial sea and become a swan this primitive music is certainly capable of.
