The River And The Fence (Poeta Negra)
Electronica / Ambient / Experimental
D. Mitsiopoulos, following K. Giazlas in the same year. After a period of experimentation, a collection of tracks came about and was finally handed by H. Martis (d-os.org), who joined the project, while working on additional production and mastering. The music of Keene can partly remind of the dark aesthetics of the 4AD in its mid/late 80’s, the deep ambient atmospheric sounds of Biosphere, the surreal declination of Coil and the earthly echoes of kraut rock. Mostly acoustic and atmospheric they feature a narrative, melodic and sometimes cinematic flow that seems to enrich this feeling of melancholic recollection and introspection with enough breathing space. “River & The Fence” is an introspective but at the same time cosy album, swinging in dreams and being characterized by a particularly elaborative sound mastering and production.
