Crisne - "Hall of Wisdom"

Posted by Chris Cantino on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 2:29 PM

Francesca Marongiu is best known as one-half of the Italian avant-drone duo Architeuthis Rex, but it's her new solo debut under the alias Crisne that really smacks me. Think heavy analog arping alongside hyper-focused drone exploration, with updated synth and drum pads—like Chris & Cosey or Doris Norton for the modern age. Seriously, those motifs have been in need of an update for a long time, and Marongiu is proving herself exceedingly capable when handling these kind of renovations. With Albedo, she succeeds not only at breathing new life into old tropes, but also at making them entirely her own. Yeah, it's really fucking good.

Crisne's Albedo is out now on Phantasma Disques.
