Ga'an


Ga’an play dark, meditative drone-prog using minimalism, poly-rhythms, and incantatory vocals to entrance the listener with its oppressive, and enveloping sound. Their new album "Black Equus" due out 11/29/2011 on Captcha Records. Their first self titled album is out on Captcha Records which features their original line-up.

Ga’an play dark, meditative drone-prog using minimalism, poly-rhythms, and incantatory vocals to entrance the listener with its oppressive, and enveloping sound. Their new album "Black Equus" due out 11/29/2011 on Captcha Records. Their first self titled album is out on Captcha Records which features their original line-up. FROM ALTERED ZONES: Ga'an strikes us immediately with its immense, visceral energy, its totalizing vision and sound. For a "prog" record, however, it reveals a strong minimalist ethic, and very little in the way of virtuosity or unnecessary fanfare.

Like the operatic prog-rockers Magma, Ga'an know how to be ambitious without falling back on the self-indulgence of the elongated instrumental solo. Instead of distracting digressions or dead-ends, they channel their energy into dynamics, levels, and texture. In standout passages "I of Infinite Forms Pt. II" and "Vultures of the Horn," it takes only the most nuanced of key changes-- like the sly introduction of a keyboard line over some stumbling drums-- to shift the sound from a haunting death march to a wash of spaced-out textures.

In this, Ga'an are similar to Isis, using subtle shifts in dynamics to pummeling and entrancing effect. Ga’an lost TWO of its original members (of four) due to some unfortunate events in late 2009 but has since reformed with a new line-up as a three piece. They will be touring the East Coast in May 2011 and the West Coast in late August/Early September 2011 in support of their as yet untitled sophmore album due out on Captcha Records. The singer/keyboardist plays solo as Fielded. The official website for Ga'an is www.ihearanewworld.com/gaan.
