For the uninitiated, Blessed Initiative is a new project from Ketev man Yair Elazar Glotman. This debut album for pal James Ginzburg's Subtext Recordings label is little less than a sonic manifesto. According to the accompanying information, the album is the result of a long and complex sound design process that variously involved manipulating tape recordings, recording his own foley style sound effects, and putting the whole thing together with the aid of a customized workstation. The results are largely very impressive though, sitting somewhere between claustrophobic sound collage and drowsy, meandering ambience. In other words, despite the high-minded experimentation behind it, Blessed Initiative just sounds great.
