My review? Actors never sounded so good : )
Sylvia Monnier now graces Sacred Phrases’ catalog with ‘Stock Shot & Addictive Sling,’ a conceptual cassette that meditates on some of the film world’s more dynamic, emotionally raw players. “Michel Piccoli” opens the set with curious apprehension, descending into frame like a light fog rolling through the woods. Distant static and occasional creaks provide the only sense of percussion and “rhythm” while the narrative is told entirely in negative space. “Theresa Russell” and “Gene Hackman” float in a sonic simmer of crackling textures and cyclical drone. “Delphine Seyrig,” one of the more dynamic pieces here, transitions from vacant field recordings and anonymous musique concrete into something much more mechanical, almost like a bizarrely kosmische take on industrial drone music. “Dennis Hopper” and “Maria Schneider” close the set out in an open-ended epiphany.”
