The mind often feels compelled to battle. It is a struggle that comes from within, against the armored braces of power and control that shape what we’re used to call “I”. In these terms, it is sometimes more useful to help your nemesis take human form, to let it operate freely and forever disrupt your own security. That’s what Davide Carbone did when he let Honzo out, unleashing his hidden side, the bringer of neurotic acid noise and diagonal beats. For the Das Unheimliche miniLP, his first Haunter release, the evil twin offers a window on his own habitat, a familiar yet unsettling world of confusion, where the observer’s own identity and finiteness are questioned. The more its inhabitants look human, the scarier they feel. Carbone’s goal is not to escape it, rather to communicate with them, mastering their language of angst.
Coherently with these premises, Das Unheimliche comes in two different versions: the 12” focusses on Honzo’s harder techno edge, while the tape features a whole additional side of abstraction and noise.
