ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seattle industrial musician celadon's debut release includes eight tracks ranging in sound from upbeat industrial to downtempo ambient beats.

Post-Industrial Delicacies' uniquely textural sound results from its mixture of found sounds and electronics. Samples of trains, birds, machinery, and people are selected, warped, manipulated, and layered into detailed compositions. The result is unlike the typical sterile, synthetic sound of most electronic music.

celadon is currently playing in the Seattle area with his experimental trio In the Deep Museum. They completed a brief European tour in May 2007.

"My goal is to express the wonder I feel for the world - its beauty and its darkness. I construct my music mostly from found sounds, twisted and bent into pleasing shapes. The music is deep and dark, but not, for the most part, angry."

ReGen Magazine

a promisingly creative approach to sound production
unfocused in places, but Celadon's debut CD shows a promisingly creative approach to sound production. Maia's work exhibits none of the overly clinical polish associated with experimental techno... and seems just as inspired by the old-fashioned noise of early Coil and Psychic TV as by the modernist electronic underground. 'Earth Abides' incorporates outdoor found sounds like birdsong with a slow, tribal-influenced beat. It's a piece that could have very easily slipped into cornball territory, but it works out well here, as does 'In My Winter,' which finishes the album in a blur of multi-layered electronic loops, chattering insects, clanking rhythms, and wordless female vocals. These more impressionistic pieces show Maia at his most promising, and if he focuses on this side of his work rather than the more lyrically-oriented pieces, he'll be able to take Celadon in some quite interesting directions.

for a walk through the mind of a musician, try this album
Post-Industrial Delicacies is a fusion of early industrial, ambient, and experimental styles. The first half of the album has a foreboding element to it: "Earth Abides" has an earthy feel to it, but there is a prevailing sense of "doom" hiding just out of reach.... "Lie With Me" is both the best and most haunting of the tracks. The spoken vocals are filled with alternate implications - do not trust this person, this demon in human form. ... The intricate blending of sounds, at times harsh, at times soothing, produce a unique element that can be somewhat off key, but melodic none-the-less.

Celadon's "Post Industrial Delicacies" is actually really fucking cool. The group describes itself as a blend of industrial, noise and ambient soundscapes, but that is only half true. Yes, this disc is heavily rooted in industrial, noise and ambient, but it is at it's core a kind of IDM release in the way the sounds are processed. Not that that's bad or anything. Not at all.

Found sound is a big part of Celadon's aural palette, and he structures the sounds together in a very cool intricate rhythmic way, replacing normal beats with found samples. While this record is highly experimental and noisy, the rhythmic element is constant and danceable, thus the IDM.

"Post Industrial Delicacies" is a very unique and challenging album. Fans of IDM, Experimental, Industrial, and generally kickass music will dig this for sure. Pick it up already!
