"Modern Faith" is the third album of Romanian artist Silviu Badea under the moniker Contorsionist. Initially released in December 2013 and recorded live a month earlier through a multichannel guitar and bass amps setup, the music in the album is certainly something of its own kind. The raw, aggressive, yet highly textured and precise, sound allows for the complex and multilayered pieces of Contorsionist to transcend genres and label tags. "Modern Faith" is an experimental work that dares to tame chaos, chance and extreme volume in order to create its aural world.
The album was mixed and mastered by Marius Costache and was originally released as a free download on 148, an imprint closely tied to Studio 148, where he and a trusted circle of artists and sound specialists operate. ‘Modern Faith’ is now available in a physical format for the first time.
"Modern Faith" is the first release in our new tape series REamek, dedicated to reissuing obscure, forgotten, overlooked or simply sold out releases from our region.
