released May 4, 2015

Slovakian-based artist I.v.Martinez is active in a variety of projects with different styles, but ExperiMENTALien is one of the more psychedelic ones. The nine tracks on this album fuse morphing digital dronescapes with subsonic pulsations that would make a great addition to the soundtrack of any remake of “Solaris”.

The shapeshifting nature of the sounds that drift in and out of harmonic fields is mirrored in the titles of the pieces, which – like the project name ExperiMENTALien – fuse several words. Trainput, Universelection, and Noiserenity are perhaps the most programmatic. The album constantly oscillates between associations with biomorphous and psychic images, which is why the “Solaris” reference immediately comes to mind: Couldn’t this be the sound of a thinking, living planet? You could think of this as the “Kosmische Musik” of Krautrock revisited through a post-industrial sensibility, but most importantly, the results sound convincing.

File under: drone, ambient, psychedelic


Nice to see that I.v. Martinez, with his project experiMENTALien, released a new full album on Emerge Attenuation-circuit. The art of noise by experiMENTALien is going to be always more mature. Textures are highly functional to a complex organic vision of sound, as you can hear in Pulselection, that reminded me to some Cranioclast sonorities. Also a video from CEsar Naves, based on Procescape track, enriches the whole work, with its polychromatic experiments. Probably my favorite production from this musician from Slovakia. Into the Unexplained Sounds Group radar.



From Slovakia hails L.V. Martinez, who works with a variety of (unnamed) projects with different styles and one of these is ExperiMENTALien, as the spelling should be. There are nine pieces on this CD, hence the title, I guess, and I have no idea what he does, but my best guess is that Martinez uses a lot of sampling of sounds, lots of effects (boxes, digital, who knows) and effectively melts down his sources into nine nightmarish pieces of detailed nuclear meltdown. Quite noise based, very industrial, but without any of the images that may come along such a ride. ExperiMENTALien keeps matters relatively abstract; more like the soundtrack to a movie that deals with such matters as apocalypse, zombies, mad max, robotic slavery and what else have you in the department of blackness. Even when he keeps things at a more limited volume, such as 'Electrip', it's still forceful and alien (indeed). Long pieces, clocking in at six to eight minutes and sometimes that seems a bit long for the amount of sonic information it has to offer in a piece, but on a more mind penetrating level, the psychedelic side of all of this, I must admit this worked rather well. Nothing for the weak of heart or mind or both.


T.R.I.v.M., mutanT.R.I., TOTAL E.T. - der Slovake I.v.Martinez (wenn er denn so heißt) gibt sich viele Namen für seine Gloomy Fiction, seine Nonseances, seine Trips in die Nebel der Irrationalität, die er sich mehrfach von Marc Brunier Mestas groteskmorbide hat illustrieren lassen. Für Nine Triads (ACLE 1013) nennt er sich ExperiMENTALien und schlüpft dabei als Alien aus sich selbst. Er spielt gern im Zwielicht aus Xenophobie und Xenophilie. Um Unschärfen und Zwielicht zu suggerieren, benutzt er wieder Kofferwörter: Drift + Trap = 'Driftrap', Electric + Trip = 'Electrip', Process + Escape = 'Procescape', mir gefällt am besten Noise + Serenity = 'Noiserenity'. Um dabei dann die Zwänge der Rationalität und des Über-Ichs zu subvertieren durch brausenden Industrial-Noise und Black-Metal-FuRoar, dröhnende Wellen, raunende Stimmen, zerrendes Zirpen. Wenn er einen freilich in die Kommandozentrale der attackierenden Marsianer versetzt, wird sonnenklar, dass Martinez Klamauk und Sarkasmus zu seinen schärfsten Waffen zählt. Ich fühle mich da jedenfalls eher in ein Bug Gehirn versetzt, als, wie vorgeschlagen, auf Solaris. Letzteres käme mir allenfalls erst beim blubbernden Morphen von 'Universelection' und 'Noiserenity' in den Sinn. Aber egal, was die Einbildungskraft da jeweils liefert, ein Perspektivwechsel ist es allemal.
[BA 86 rbd]


le son du grisli:

Pas retournant, le premier morceau. Mais bien quand même. Et bien quand même c’est quand même bien… Dans une veine noise tranquille (oui, cette veine existe). On suppose des guitares bien larges, de l’électronique spasmodique…

C’est sur la deuxième plage que les choses sérieuses commencent. Au lieu du bruit blanc, le groupe (experiMENTALien, mais en fait L.V. Martinez, grand amateur de mots-valises) donne dans le bruit rose. Il emporte des voix d’hommes et de femmes, des immondices de toutes espèces dans un flot sonore bruitisto-concret. Et ça ne s’arrête jamais : troisième, quatrième, cinquième plage… Il faut avoir le cœur bien accroché pour suivre l’affluence de toutes ces choses inconnues qui font du bruit. Mais du beau.
Pierre Cécile
