about

“Bloody Oath” is thick and sticky like eucalyptus sap, monotonous like a didgeridoo sound, drone ambient from the German artist René Margraff aka Pillowdiver. All tracks in the album are based on top hits from Australian musicians. “I created these in a similar way like “Frozen Soundtracks” – says René - I was freezing, stretching, mangling, whatever moments of these three songs first. These then got layered into fuzzy drones”. In search of a music protolanguage Pillowdiver neutralizes the current pop culture and reveals an archaic character of primitive cultures by reducing fictitious diversity of the contemporary music palette to a sacral, timeless drone. And this process is unlikely to be subject to reverse engineering.

The album design is entirely hand-made, in line with the edition concept. The general set of colours implies a blood oath rite. A cover somewhat refined (calligraphic type, folds of dark silk) presents a contrast to the filling: signs of the aboriginal Australian culture bleed through coarse paper of the inserted booklet. The edition is limited – only 66 handnumbered copies.

René Margraff (b. 1975) lives and works in Berlin. He started Pillowdiver in 2008 and released his albums at such labels as 12k, Analogpath, Under The Spire, Twisted Tree Line, Nomadic Kids Republic.
