      LASSE MARHAUG "Spaghetti Western Rainbow" UTECH RECORDS [URCD002] $14 USD

      Hailing from the land of the rising snow, Lasse Marhaug has become one of
      the most commanding and respected sound artists in Norway. As a musician and
      composer he has contributed to cd, vinyl and cassette releases for labels
      throughout Europe, Asia and America. Aside from solo work, Marhaug
      contributes to several ensembles including Nash Kontroll (iDEAL) and a large
      Jazkamer unit (Smalltown Supernoise) with black metal legends Enslaved.
      Having collaborated with artists from varying fields of musik (Sunn O))),
      Aaron Dilloway and Maja Ratkje to name a few) Marhaug's reach extends into
      musik for theatre, installations and video.

      A salvo to Ennio Morricone, Spaghetti Western Rainbow stands testament to
      the Italian composer's enduring influence. Morricone collaborator Sergio
      Leone established the spaghetti western genre in 1964 with A Fistful of
      Dollars. The director used Morricone again to score the remaining two films
      in his three-part account of greed and violence (For a Few Dollars More; The
      Good, The Bad and the Ugly.) Leone's critics were struck by his brutal
      depiction of an unromantic West, but his singular style, camera angles and
      extension of time made his film different from any western that had come
      before. Lasse Marhaug exacts Leone's slow, beautiful power and love for
      expanse with shades of Morricone's subtle witchery to create what will
      inevitably be considered one of his masterworks. Harsh, dry passages blend
      with drifting soundscapes, bird calls and an asseverate guitar figure that
      promotes an invigorating context for film musik.

      Issued on Utech Records [001] as a micro pressing of 100 cdr copies in the
      winter of 2004. Lasse Marhuag first performed this music as an improvised
      laptop work for Chicago station WNUR. This edition finds the piece
      remastered and divided into two tracks that open and close the album.
      Two unreleased pieces recorded in Boston, Bergen and Oslo have been added
      as bonus tracks. Various source material contributed by Keith Fullerton
      Whitman. Artwork inspired by the film "The Great Silence."
