[SFR019] Alejandro Remeseiro – Soundscapes from R’lyeh
Alejandro Remeseiro is on Second Family Records Netlabel once again with a special release in which, this time, he traces minimal nuances in the aesthetics of microsounds. The trajectories develop in the darkest landscape full of drones and rumbligs connected to modularity, swings and smooth fragmented pulses. A great comeback.
This work is inspired by the fictional lost city of R’lyeh that first appeared in the H. P. Lovecraft short story “The Call of Cthulhu”.
According to Lovecraft’s short story, R’lyeh is a sunken city in the South Pacific and the prison of the entity called Cthulhu.
“Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” means “In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” It is often shortened to, “Cthulhu fhtagn,” which loosely translates to, “Cthulhu waits,” or “cdreams.”
Here are the sounds of R’lyeh, the house of Cthulhu under the big ocean.
Is he just a myth? Will he awake from his eternal dream?
