“On Saturday night the festival presented a commission: “Trinity,” a collaboration by Lustmord, from Los Angeles, and Biosphere, from Norway. The West Park Presbyterian Church had been turned into a surround-sound environment.

Trinity was the name of the first test of the atomic bomb, in New Mexico, and the images on the video screen at the church were black-and-white film of desert landscapes, 1940s bomb technology and eventually the detonation. Lustmord and Biosphere are kindred spirits, masters of ominous ambience: enveloping, murky, ultra-slow-motion music. “Trinity” filled the room with tectonic rumbles and gradual whooshes, with tolling crashes followed by silences, with air-raid sirens, with claustrophobically thick cluster chords that were sometimes electronic and sometimes orchestral — part Penderecki, part “A Day in the Life” — and with spoken words from the era, wondering, “What have we done?” They embraced technology to question where technology can lead. -[NY Times]

The Unsound Festival came to a close after performances from Napszyklat and Maria Minerva, with DJ sets from Sun Araw vs. Heat Wave and Eltron John, Sunday night at Glasslands.

The Lustmord/Biosphere collaboration at West Park Presbyterian Church on Saturday (4/21) also featured a supporting slot from Jacaszek. More pictures and a video from that show, below…
