pmxper is a new collaboration between the artists Pavel Milyakov (aka Buttechno) and Perila. They will debut live at the influential Berlin Atonal festival in September. The music has elements of spoken word, electronics, guitars and drums, and has the same feel, flow and freedom as Young Marble Giants' classic album »Colossal Youth«.
Recorded (mostly) remotely between 2020-2022, but mired in a mutual interiority, their sublimely smoky venture bridges strains of spoken word, strung-out country folk, jazz and etheric kosmische with a timeless control of mood and atmosphere that amounts to one of the finest episodes in either’s oeuvre. In a properly enchanted blurring of identity, they almost entirely dispense with digital tools in favour of more pastoral and timeless energies; guitar, sax, jazzy brush drums and a Rhythm Ace FR-3 drum machine, a sort of precursor to Roland’s simmering CR-78.
