The Brvtalist is pleased to premiere a new track from Marc Ash. The Berlin-based, Italian artist is set to release his new EP, Litanies For The Self (BlackSilk) and “Kein Schmerz” is one of our favorite offerings from the record. With previous releases on Clan Destine and Helena Hauff’s Return to Disorder, Ash has built a reputation for his varied styles and rejection of conventional genres and boundaries. Exploring elements of electro, techno, wave and beyond, his music fits no category and each track on Litanies For The Self is meant to be interpreted a different way by the listener. From the artist:
It took me quite some time to pick a selection of pieces that could be part of the ambitious project I had in my mind as a sequel of the Plovdiv EP that came out more than two years ago. I came up with five tracks quite spacing the electronic musical spectrum, played in an obscure key that reflects my multifaceted personality. This work brings on my creative fight against strict genre-thinking. I dislike these empty black boxes where artists or people in general feel comfortable in and conform in any possible way to fit in. I don’t feel at ease in any of these, I reject them artistically as much as socially. I do music my very own way, not to please any particular niche, perhaps caring a bit too little about my surroundings. It’s a solitary work, painfully slow and cathartic, that constantly helps me healing from wounds of different nature.
Litanies For The Self is out November 26th on 12” and digital formats. For more visit: https://blacksilkrecs.bandcamp.com/
