On Board Music has been helping to shape the form of the electronic scene since more than 2 years now as a booking, promotion and events agency. Its founder Laura BCR – who used to co-run Bass Cadet Recordstore in Berlin decided to launch a vinyl offshoot to present some special projects from its artists. OBM will sporadically deliver a carefully curated series of selected releases. After a remarked EP for Firecracker based on heavy rhythm experimentations, Antonio Marini aka Healing Force Project is back in incredible shape for the launch of the project. He delivers this time six original cuts of electronic free jazz that dwell deep into a rough sea of acid sequences, soft percussions and lush pads.
Opening the EP, “A Matter Of Time” sets the things up with a phlegmatic tempo centered around a feverish acid line. A soft mist of organic snares, dub percussions and jazz hi-hats slips over spacious spreads of synthesizers. “Abduction” is then stepping the EP into a more intense dimension as its distorted and filtered shamanic drumming sustains a high energy, with the clear intention to bring the listener in a trance state. The momentum is reached as a deep organ covers the whole structure and releases twirls of acid into this mediative canvas. Closing the side, “Harmony Of Spheres” brings the pace down again, condensing all the acid material into a drowned mechanical piece that finally breathes when pads comes in at half-course. The B-side opens with “Alternative Currents” a gasping piece of electronic jazz centered around a play of tribal percussions and dissonant pads. “Parsec City” continues the story with its amazing free jazz rhythm investigation, showing once again the expertise of Marini in complex patterns. Closing the EP, the shorter “Seven Transmutation” plays with sharp acid stripes and immersed organs chords on a frame of abstract drum sequences.
