Review from Vital Weekly of “THE BEGINNING OF BEGINNINGS”

logoPATRICK KAVANAGH – THE BEGINNING OF BEGINNINGS (CDR by Killer’s Car Records)

The one time before we hear of Patrick Kavanagh was in Vital Weekly 968, when JKH reviewed a release of his with Anastasia Mano under the name of Subterranean Death Trap. In the press text
for his latest solo release, he writes he was also a member of Spiney Fleshpot (along with the recently deceased Peter Read) and that he plays around with drummer Louis Burdett. Before that
he was a member of Jaundiced Eye (with John Murphy, also deceased), Dweller On The Threshold, Box The Jesuit and Madroom. His earliest bands were Moist, Leather Moustache and Smack Of Jellyfish. None of the somewhat silly band names mean much to me. His main instruments in his solo work are the piano and a synthesizer, and he has three very long pieces, and two that clock at nine minutes, so perhaps also a bit long already. This album is a bit of a mixed bag, I think. The first three pieces are explorations of the ambient music template, but not so much in the Eno/Budd style. Kavanagh plays freely and without that much reverb added to the mix. He adds something else, and that’s a field recording in a strong collage like manner. People talking, street sounds and a bit of percussion are thrown in and it is all perhaps less ambient and more radiophonic/modern classic, especially the more solemn ‘The Leaves Danced For Wanda’. The best piece was ‘Emergence From The Chrysalis’, in which the piano is pushed back in favour of electronic sounds. And what about the other two, you may ask? ‘Plough’ and ‘Grow’ are pieces for hammered piano sounds, the fast and the furious; maybe Kavanagh calls this is his minimalist composer interest, but I found both pieces very weak and out of place on this album. He could have left both out and have
much a more excellent record that spans fifty minutes, and not half good but full length. (FdW)

Sounds new from near and far

A nice descriptive of one of the tracks off my new album from the good Ian Parsons of ‘The Sound Barrier’ on PBSFM –
“The Beginning of Beginnings is the first solo album to be released by Melbourne’s Patrick Kavanagh, from which we heard the closing track ‘Grow’, with its furious keyboards and synthesised sounds, bursting with energy and drive. It is perhaps a different, and yet far from incompatible, view of what emerges from the rawness and chaos of, as Patrick describes it in the album’s liner notes, ‘mists of times long gone’. In this track the piano pounds away ferociously, unstoppably, while the noisy train of both history and the future chugs along throughout it all. It is perhaps a reminder that once something has begun, it always leads to a journey you just cannot avoid taking.”

Thanks, love and appreciation go to my darling Wanda for the infinite inspirations invoked daily through her inner strength, beauty and loveliness; and for bringing far off and improbable worlds into glorious being.
