We wanted it raw and tense, fierce and intense, but not necessarily noisy.

"Nonmenabsorbium is a cerebral work of powerful compositions that combine technical prowess with haunting intrigue."
The Brvtalist

Prolific Swiss electronic composer Francisco Meirino (Misantropic Agenda, Entr'acte, Antifrost) and Basque country’s most prominent left-field musician Miguel A. Garcia aka Xedh (Crónica, Idealstate) team up and go for the rawest yet most carefully built electronic experimentation. No-input mixer, modular synth, field recordings & magnetic fields find themselves at the core of this true gem of radical electronic music, savvily handcrafted with by two experts of the genre.

In : Include Me Out

Noise often plain annoys me but Nonmenabsorbium permeates my lugholes in a pleasing manner and as fans of the genre will tell you there's much more to 'it' than you think, than I think, than one may think when first repulsed by the apparently pointless torturing of machines and, more to the point, listeners such as myself who, in a terribly old-fashioned way ultimately prefers some refinement and sophistication in their non-melodic/rhythmic sounds as provided by legends such as the you-know-whos of great historical significance from France, Germany the USA and elsewhere although, I admit, it's unfair to compare all contemporary electronic sound to The Classics therefore I shan't, in this case especially since it speaks for itself, can stand up for itself in a fight against Them, probably, such is the sublime aesthetic of this album and as I speak, listening to Abholicater, the astute use of what sounds like the ghost of Pierre Schaeffer's train being shunted from the 40s into the present is but one of the joys of this particular collection of noise-not-noises.

 

In : Silence And Sound

La collaboration entre le suisse Francisco Meirino (Misantropic AgendaEntr’acteAntifrost) et l’espagnol Miguel A. García alias Xedh, est l’occasion de plonger dans une musique expérimentale nourrie de field recordings et de d’électronique déviante, faite de tensions et de dérives auditives à la matière parasite.

Nonmenabsorbium combine magistralement les sources sonores, bâtissant des titres radicaux semblant surgir de recherches du GRM et de Beatriz Ferreyra, où les larsens aiment venir tricoter du coté de nos tympans. Cérébral tout en étant viscéral, Nonmenabsorbium pratique l’art du cache-cache, multipliant les strates pour y planquer des micro-éléments aux allures de faune spectrale, donnant à entendre ce que l’on veut, là où l’on place sa concentration.

Francisco Meirino & Miguel A. García renouent avec une certaine idée de l’électro-acoustique, tout en repoussant ses limites via l’emploi de nouvelles technologies au service d’une musique incisive et moléculaire, qui joue à travers toutes les pores de notre organisme. Un opus emprunt de matière grise et de noise caressante comme du papier de verre. Très fortement conseillé.
