Perimeter - Perceiving The Invisible

The other day I reviewed a darkish ambient work by Swaying Smoke and an experimental piece from one of my favorite labels, test tube. Today, I combine the two with a look at Perimeter’s Perceiving The Invisible on the Dark Winter netlabel. Perceiving The Invisible immediately demands the listener’s patience and attention with the first track intense foreboding. There is no gently introduction to guide you through the murkiness, you are forced to jump in to the deep end of its coldness. The following poem that travels with the album is by Andre Buter (aka Perimeter) and it says much more about the work than I really could.

The times I felt suspended in motion
Like I was in cryo-stasis
Those times tell tales of sorrow
And of unspoken sadness and endless pondering

Hear This…

Times I spent among the sin eaters
Everyone has felt that way some time
Eating sins of others
Only to find nothing contained therein

The times I felt myself fading from existence
Were remarkable in their blackness and
Absence of feeling as the continuing echoes
of words left unspoken

The time has come to approach myself
To deepen my bond with the universe
I let myself fall from a non-existing cliff
To Fall into the sea and go down the trench

And then, with the eyes closed
Perceiving the Invisible
