Ummagma - Micro Macro

Single review by soul1@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


Ummagma have been up to some of their lovely old tricks; delivering music through a very effective pimp: YouTube. This Canadian-Ukrainian duo have become known for their fantastic audio-visual offerings, so it's no wonder that we have caught onto their latest video for 'Micro Micro'.



This video was produced by Californian Edward Alvarez, with the original film material derived from historic (now creative commons) archives. Not just ANY film, but a film that barely survived to this day, as all existing copies of this film (barring this one), which celebrated Dadaistic film art-forms, were destroyed by the Nazi regime in the lead-up to World War II.





Perhaps their utmost "indietronic" track, there is also a bit of ethic pseudo-gypsy flair in the first half of the song, while the second half of this track leads you into a scratchy drum programming wonderland that leaves you wishing it would continue for at least a few minutes more.





You are also welcome to enjoy this and other tracks in audio-only form (we've attached a small selection here) or head over to Ummagma's YouTube, where you can already find a bouquet of their creations.
