Post Global Trio is a project between Toni Dimitrov – electronics, field recordings, contact mic, acoustics, Dimitar Dodovski – electronics, synths and Martin Georgievski – guitar, synths, electronics, piano. Post Global Trio is an experience. An experience that you can feel on the journey through distant lands. Inside or outside thyself. Image of clear and subtle soundscapes and landscapes. Enter into the woods. Leave the city behind the horizon. Forget about it… Now enter more deeply. In thyself. And find yourself. The way you were before you have long forgotten. The project is created as a continuity of communication, collaboration, necessity of developing a certain scene. Sound picture of long-term mutual philosophical meditations.
Age of Insects is the result of a series of visits made by Mark and Laura to Stephen’s studio in Virginia between May 2009 and January 2010.
The three improvised around common interests in analog electronics and digital manipulation, field recordings and instrumental performance practice. These recordings presented here feature only minimal editing and post-production, with a primary intent of capturing shared moments of listening and response.
The titles refer to extinct insects—the imagined hum and flutter of their calls, flight and communication.
Presented in the Tartaruga house style, (thick recycled cardboard gatefold sleeve), this release features a beautiful screen-printed design from Bruno Jones, in bright Phthalo Green. The CD comes with a two-colour screen-printed foldout insert, again featuring illustration from Bruno Jones, printed on high quality Pergamenata paper.
I first came across Marihiko Hara’s work in 2007, with his ‘Cesura’ release on the excellent Italian net-label – Zymogen. It really drew me in more than most other work that was doing the rounds at the same time. It had the sort of organic details and attention to beautiful subtle developments that I had only really heard in offthesky and Nicolas Bernier before (both label mates on Zymogen I should add). It became my soundtrack to that year and an album I returned to almost daily during the winter months. After this I followed Marihiko’s work carefully, from his rather fantastic 2009 ‘Icon’ release on Cotton Goods to his recent ‘Prosa’ collaboration with Tomas Phillips on Tench Records.
