About this item

Originally released 1976. The fourth Heldon album "Agneta Nilsson" sees Richard Pinhas and his changing entourage of musicians delve even deeper into Heldon's sonic universe. Their trusted array of hypnotic synthesizer sounds is underscored in places by drums and/or guitar. Mind-expanding stuff! Agneta Nilsson opens with a mind-paralyzing track that proves stillness can have a pulse. "Perspective I" spends ten minutes poring through tectonic layers of heavy sound, piling everything so thick that the song becomes like quicksand for your brain. It's one of the most daunting works in the Heldon catalog, made all the more impressive by how simple it is. It's just sounds put together and turned up. It's the vital alchemy of Pinhas's wizardry, deployed with maximum force.
