about

Chi’en is an 80 minute long psychedelic trip that feels like a single unity moving forward. In this second album by Qa’a almost all the musical threads of the band are deepened; It’s more hypnotic and repetitive, noisier and more dissonant, somewhat more abstract and at the same time more folk although there are less ambient/drone/free jazz parts than in Vesprada. It’s a record of extremes, from nude moments to walls of dissonance and harrowing noise with a psychedelic production that has tons of layers, sounds and instruments thrown in for good measure. Hans Joachim Irmler from Faust, a professed fan, aided the band to mix and master the album.
