Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions has been running for donkey's years, continuously shaping the fine lines between abstract experimentation, sound installations and electronica. This is Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement's sixth instalment for the label and as usual, comes courtesy of a generous digital re-release from its original and near impossible to find, cassette format. A haunting wall of noise opens "Spot A Witch By Changes In The Persons Behaviour", a rich concoction of white noise which eventually transforms into a more stable, drone-fuelled dissection. The chillingly named "In New Guinea Police Don't Have The Petrol Money To Search For The Witch Murderers" is a fine example of their objective: to capture situations and reduce them to a musical context - crackling, almost human field recordings guiding the whole 5 minutes. Same goes for "Bodies Of Suspected Witches Are Dumped In The River Or Buried In Toilet Pits", a bizarre alignment between haunted recordings and tape manipulations; and its only on "Sorcery Killings" that the artist gives us anything near a concrete musical arrangement. Otherworldly recordings from the label!
