Nothing is holy !
With his fourth solo-release, Reto Mäder aka RM74 takes us on a fevery missionary journey which is driven by an unholy quest for saturation and leads us into the dark places where tortured souls dwell. Unpredictably muckraking in the shoals of timeless abysses, RM74 seeks to kindle the supressed fires of passion. Nothing less !
To do justice to his mission, Mäder interweaves acoustic instruments such as organ, piano, bassguitar or harp with analogue and digital treatmenst into 8 fiery and frivolous revelations.
The symbiotical relation on Fireproof In 8 Parts is cleary in favour of the beatified instruments, which are re-discovered as liberating tools : "The dusty organ winds itself ecstatically in purgatory. The rickety piano holds confused and atonal soliloquies. The detuned strings of the bassguitar gleefully dance to the song of wantonness, and the harp calls for the exorcism of charaded awe!"
"Fireproof In 8 Parts" also contains a bonus record titled "Part 9: LoFire". This songs offers additional insight into the works of RM74, concentrating on his lofi-inspired songwriter drafts.
