All That Rises is a reissue of two EPs that were originally released in late 1986 on Touch, The Sea Org (tracks one through three) and Brain Song (tracks five through nine), with additional tracks that were previously unreleased. The group's interest in perception and the effects of sound is still very much in the foreground here. Almost all of this collection contains the Hafler Trio's particular take on layered drones, where occasionally recognizable sounds (especially voices) appear buried in the mix, and where a sound will suddenly appear or disappear, in one channel or in both. Sometimes the drones will show their origins to be some kind of field recordings as the sounds thin out.

All That Rises is a reissue of two EPs that were originally released in late 1986 on Touch, The Sea Org (tracks one through three) and Brain Song (tracks five through nine), with additional tracks that were previously unreleased. The original cover of Brain Song still includes Edward Moolenbeek as a member of the group, and interviews from the period still refer to Spridgeon as inspiration.

Seek & you shall find something truly innovative & disturbing in its scope here. "All That Rises Must Converge" delves into the recesses of your subconscious & dances with what lurks there so deftly & defiantly that a conscious mind could remain unclear as to what Andrew McKenzie's intentions were during its making.It starts off uneasily & try to stay with what might feel uneven initially, cos by the time A Luna Kanula, Blanket Level Approach #3 and Captation #7/'Transilient Membranes' have had their wicked way with you, you'll have been mind-fucked by shimmering, echoing, discordant hazes of valved harmonics & trauma so fully, chances are you'll immediately rewind & replay. The more you listen the more there is to hear & the more you hear the further down the rabbit hole it'll take you. It floats, flows, shifts through duct-piping, dislocates, seduces & manipulates through menageries of sonic mischief, from hallucinatory spatial corridors to some of the most cunning & nuanced vocal compositions. Entire audio worlds develop, transition & sweep forth in ever more daring dalliances & avoiding structured percussion modes just adds to its mastery.It could be the enveloping soundtrack to a Kenneth Grant-esque shadow-cult ritual in full paranormal flow, or a more menacing merging of mangled recordings you might find in the catalogs of Andrew Liles, Colin Potter, Anne Guthrie, Nurse With Wound, Andrew Chalk, Jonathon Coleclough & Darren Tate. And yet its a strange, strange creation that transforms the listener into realms you couldnt imagine otherwise. How many albums have that in their armoury?Inspirational/10
Thank you, I think you summed it up better than I would hope to. I would like to add that there is a mischievous humour that permeates this album, frequently giving me the giggles when I listen through and never more than when playing to a friend for the first time!
THE HAFLER TRIO have taken the art of juxtaposed ambient noise, electronic enhancement, mood atmospheres, stark contrasts & have made it their very own, and nowhere more obviously than on this album. "An Introduction To Go" takes abstract voice snatches, oddly misalligned rhythmic devices, ritualistic horns, aether-noise, crowded places (airport or railway station), cattle sounds & all manner of odd 'accidental' events & meld them into a definite composition. It has an unnerving feel to it yet is admirable in it's attempt at 're-locating' atmosphere & event into your home. "Of The Building Of Forms By Vibration" utilises the sounds of (apparently) nocturnal animals & birds, multi-layerig them & treating them, creating a disquieting alien atmosphere with their haunted noises. "The Howney Stone" again uses strange, quiet yet unnerving noises all blended into an atmosphere like a wind-blown mountainside with the sound of gunfire punctating the air cruelly. It transforms through electronics & other found crowd sounds. "A Luna Kanuta" is a long piece at over 11 minutes. Starting off with a dark, warm, close, metallic-tinted sound, expanding out into muffled & mutated crowd sounds which are treated, abused & multiplied over & over. "Blanket Level Approach #3" combines the sound of lapping water (presumably the sea upon rocks or pebbles) with a variety of factory-like Industrial sounds - cylindrical reverberations, humming machines, both in contrast yet with an uneasy symbiosis. "Captation #7 - 'Transilient Membranes'" is another long piece at nearly 11 minutes - a mulit-facetted amorphous drift of sound, layer-upon-layer of howling, floating, indefinable noise which changes gradually, afloat upon the air like thick cigar smoke, tumbling in slow-motion curls, thickening & thinning seemingly by chance. A vocal chorus nips in & steals the atmosphere for it's own Towards the end it moves through a much more stark series of sounds, from enhanced jagged noises to laughing children, to roaring noise to sudden vocal glissandos. "Buggy Whip Flings" in brief, combining screams, reverbed noises & gargling vocal sounds. "Captation #9 - 'SarekÖbe'" uses traffic sounds with crowd noises, creaking doors, echoed footsteps, and a vast assortment of other ambient & electronically-enhanced sounds. What appears to be people playing with balloons is amplified until it becomes a pure noise thing. Alien insect or amphibian calls combine with human & machine noises. "Strata Definition Test #10" kicks into it's complex life with muffled voice & echo feedback before becoming another minimal ambient thing which concludes wih snippit snatches of human voice. "Myriologue #2 - 'Calenture'" is another long piece kicking off with pure noise blast, then settling into another amorphous colage of overlayered images, both found and artificial, combining into something which considers itself a composition, having a certain cnformity of structure. This transforms throughout, complicating through a series of none-too-easily-defined noise changes, ending as it began with a blast of noise. "Myriologue #3 - 'Quonking'" is another fairly short piece, combining dog-yap-like hinge squeaks, electronically-enhanced water & other found sounds with the central focal point being a swirling series of gated atmospheres which whirl around before concluding in a high-pitched shriek. "MZVLNE" concludes the album being a deep, dense amalgam of incomprehensible crowd mumbling, stark keyboards & dark thunderous noise. It concludes with what sounds like a snatch from a teach-yourself foriegn language tape.Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.
