MICHAEL CASHMORE The Doctrine Of Transformation Through Love II

CD album | gg322
Michael Cashmore is an English composer and musician currently living in Berlin. He has created music under the name of Nature And Organisation since the early '80s and more recently (2006) under his own name. He is widely known as being the composer of the most seminal albums of legendary group Current 93 during a 25 year period, he has also worked with, and wrote music for, Nick Cave, Marc Almond, Anohni (Antony and the Johnsons), Tony Visconti, Bill Fay, Little Annie among others. During the last 3 years Cashmore has been undergoing a process of personal transformation which has also caused a transformation of his work. Michael has also been using his music itself as a tool of transformation in return. His new album "The Doctrine Of Transformation Through Love II" is the second part of a series of works that documents Cashmore's personal transformation from 2017 onwards. The music here is now very experimental, electronic, melodic and could be seen to have a dark connection to techno. As a strong contrast to the rest of the album the last track features a simple melodic song with legendary singer/songwriter Little Annie. The album is an eternal journey through darkness, space and loneliness through divine love into light and elevated consciousness, it is a documentation and is a key tool to be used in the process of transformation through love. This album was created to energize and turn the listener into an active participator in the work. It introduces Michael's new movement The Hidden Throne 434 which is intended to motivate and inspire people to reach their true potential through transformation through love, this album will become a force within its creation and reaction.

De muziek op deel twee is erg experimenteel, elektronisch, melodieus en heeft een connectie met duistere techno. Dit alles is vergelijkbaar met deel 1 en ook het afsluitende nummer lijkt een traditie te worden: zo bracht Cashmore op het eerste deel jaren 70 zanger Bill Fay nog eens in herinnering, op het tweede deel laat hij de legendarische singer/songwriter Little Annie (die ook al samenwerkte met o.a. Nurse With Wound, Coil en Current 93) opdraven voor een eenvoudig melodieus nummer.
