    Keiji Haino – So, Black Is Myself

    Keiji Haino - So, Black Is Myself

    This is Haino’s first release from our fine feathered friends to the North: the Canadians. It also happens to be his most “empty” effort so far—one lifelong, 68-minute track of mystery electronic drone. At the 15-minute mark, low-pitched percussive knocks show up, followed by some pretty damaged rudra vina work about 12 minutes later and earliest-morning gargling vocals 10 minutes after that. These are among Haino’s lowest and most unusual vocals ever. In fact, it doesn’t even sound like him. An additional higher, louder drone joins in at the 48 minute mark accompanied by matching high-pitched vocal wails three minutes later. Some barely audible breaking glass signals “the end is near” as the sound fades away. The all-black cover is printed on nicely textured paper with a faint image of Haino near the bottom.
