Tres Pianos 09:54


With four records in the bag, Evil Gima has slowly and quietly (or loudly) made a name for itself as the boundary-pushers on the FFRSD roster. Evil Gima's music is the aural equivalent of laying on a beautiful bed with foam and comfy blankets but the bed is floating on hot bubbling lava. This river of lava also has a cliff coming up that it will spill over.

While overall Evil Gima's music tends to be on the experimental and ambient side, it's often presented with a sense of melody or lyricism rare in those genres. Evil Gima often buries melodies in the middle of huge sonic soundscapes and plucks moments of humor in even the darkest experimental pieces. Half the time, their music can lull a listener into a state of sleepiness and the other half jolt them wide awake from a pulsing depth charge.

Tres Pianos os reminiscent of the relaxed Nils Frahm and the more improvisatory Julian Marchal. The record was created by layering three pianos, recorded one at a time, each of them improvised. This album was produced without a click track. Each successive overdub was done without knowing exactly when or what to strike. It was left up to chance. Three pianos in the same room, blindfolded. It's like the musical version of the prisoner's dillema where no one knew when each piano would sound.

The result? Tres Pianos is a sweetly ambient, sparse, fumbly, and easy listen that surprises you with it's musical humor.
