Biography

www.arciv-ev-noise.net
Arciv ev Noise is a project from Poland that released their latest work maintenant (French for “now”) on the experimental Enough Records netlabel. Not much seems to be known about them on the Internet (or I was too silly
to look at the right places), except that their music is described as dark ambient and experimental drone. But let’s quickly forget these superficial tags, as they omit a lot of individuality that shines through the entire release, like their lavish cover artwork, which exhibits a highly skilled level of typographic design and a fine sense for contrasts.

At first a view from 102000 metres above: The work makes sense as a whole in its determined play order and is remarkable for not having any weak spots despite its length of nearly 60 minutes. There are no contradictions in style, and whilst arrangements remain lean they provide enough events to not become monotonous or even annoying. Although the dark and tragic character of the music is prevailing in all tracks, everything is well balanced here: Just
as much hovering chords or noise trapped in echo loops as
necessary to maintain the darkness but at the same time sufficient alterations and contrasting elements to avoid a repetitive liturgy. A lot of Power-/MacBook “it-is-art-because-I-said-so” lightshow improvisateurs could learn a lesson
or two from Arciv ev Noise’s approach of describing a lively scenery without resorting to platitudes like ten boring minutes of footsteps walking down
a museum hall recordings.
