“For this first album as The Nordic Miracle, Jazzkammer’s Lasse Marhaug and Origami Arktika’s Tore Bøe have collected their first three live performances, “unedited and unprocessed,” presented between December 2000 and September 2001. All three are ferocious slabs of harsh noise in the most extreme, unruly way (think pre-laptop Merzbow or Government Alpha). Their sheer power turns them into physical experiences, but despite their blatant in-your-face nature, they hide clever twists and a bizarre sense of contrasting à propos. Don’t try too hard to find relations between the referential titles and the musical contents. If you manage to find something by Bach or The Beatles in there, you may be listening to the wrong record. There is a guitar chord buried somewhere in the middle of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” but that’s about it. Everything else is raging analogue and digital noise. The aforementioned track makes good use of “outbursts” of silence (yes, in this context silence feels almost more violent than noise), while “Bach; Die Johannes-Passion BWV 245″ can almost become ambient it is so relentlessly deafening. Followers of the Origami Arktika constellation, and even Jazzkammer fans, will be surprised by the brutality of this material.”
