(ER098) Diu Pii – A Life By The Dream

Come dreamers! Come and share in this communal sleep! This dream we all share, this phenomena of one head living hundreds of silent slumbering lives, is brought to light by this brilliant tour de force of unreleased gems from the incredible Diu Pii. She has released on Effluvia before, oh yes! A split with one of my very favorite ambient musicians Graham Boosey (behind Rainbow Valley), and her contribution to that piece was a lovely piece of adventurous ambiance. This anthology of works, created under several other psyeudoynms like diu, diubutterfly, and |] ! |_|   |* ! !, is such an active listening album. The pieces are always changing in such unexpected ways with a wonderful palette of different sweet tasting rhythms and glitches and tidal waves of ebbing and approaching sounds. It still feels very ambient, despite it’s very involving nature, because it takes you to such a deep place that one almost puts the music in the backdrop, too baffled by the flashes of thought that these vibrant sculptures bring to attention. But the fruit of this record is so edgy and startling that sounds will hop in that you were never expecting to hear in a lifetime, often challenging and truly bizarre but all working in such a harmonious, chillout way that one cant help but be brought only to good feelings and tidings by it. It feels real as well, honest. It shows what a brilliant mind can concoct even in a home setting without flashy gear and t-shirts of fancy tape labels. The results of her experimentation, her deliberate harmonies which dance around along with it, is just as delectable to the taste-buds as any hi fidelity twenty dollar LP, perhaps moreso! Along with this talent with sound, she is also a terrific painter, and I hope all who appreciate this artist will discover that more and more in time as her magnificent work inevitably brings gifts to all who are willing to find them. She composes and paints with such exactness that it dazzles the awe, truthfully. That’s a better skill then lumberjacking anyway! take this artist by the hand! See a bit of her life, her life by the dream!

Emanate the residue, my friends. All foundations have dismantled. The veils have all lifted. The stench of rot is in the air. Breathe in the aroma deeply, my friends. You, a fellow secreter of radiance and soul. Let us dissolve reality and float about in the primordial world where everything imaginable comes to pass. Come, transcend the mud by digging into it. My friends, let us bask in the effluvia of it all!
