“Moonchy & Tobias III” Reviewed at Keys and Chords

” ‘When I sing in Latin it feels like discovering the details of ancient lives lost in time.’ A statement by the Italian vocalist Pat Moonchy and representative of the overwhelming atmosphere on the third album. Together with the American multi-instrumentalist Todd Tobias, the duo conjures up theatrical images drenched in melancholy and darkness. The use of the dead language Latin accentuates antiquity and impermanence.

For Pat Moonchy, this collaboration is one of many to test out her classical singing qualities. Under the name Sothiac, the emphasis was more on thin soundscapes and avant-garde in duo with Paul Jolly (sax and bass).  It is therefore nice to hear her in more accessible projects such as with Todd Tobias. A versatile musician and not averse to ambient and psychedelic trance. Menacing soundscapes, oracle vocals and smearing of the vocal cords make Moonchy & Tobias III the ideal soundtracks for horror movies, crime scenes, theater or even experimental dance.

Let your own imagination work!  ”
