URNA "Larvae" review on Letters From A Tapehead

The one-man ambient project known as, Urna, considers "lamentations" and "blood" to be instrumental enough in his album's creation to be included in the list of instruments that built these expansive and at times ritualistic soundscapes. I can't argue this logic.

The album, Larvae, consists of both the whispering, doom-mongering netherworld of noise and isolation as well as the manipulation of semi-harmonic drones and tonality. The result is very large and voluminous, a temple of incidental noise generated by its environs as well as the ringing and clanking of a ritual or service. “Kangling,” “Lha-Mo” and “Murmur” were heavy with these elements, the sounds associated with the type of stuff men and women would generate to appease an omnipresent and fearful product of their superstition, namely a God or some other omniscient figurehead. Maybe I missed the point, but like ritual, like religion, it can all be reinterpreted.

Side note: The bell music of “Rakshasa” goes great with the ice cream truck as it comes driving down the neighborhood street.
