HomeMusicReview: 5ive’s Continuum Research Project 5ive’s Continuum Research Project “The Hemophiliac Dream” (Tortuga Recordings) I read a book called Snow Crash a while ago. It’s some kind of cyber-punk sort of thing. It was pretty interesting. One of the characters was named Da5id and I never knew how to pronounce his name. I don’t know how to pronounce these guys’ name either. Luckily, I don’t have to pronounce anything, I just have to listen. “The Hemophiliac Dream” is one of the more interesting records I’ve heard in a while. Consisting of only two instrumental songs, “Part I” and “Part II: The Remix”, 5ive’s CRP certainly has a penchant for the off-beat. Speaking of off-beat, the two tracks clock in at about twenty-five and thirteen minutes respectively. Both begin with an ominous silence that eventually gives way to a claustrophobia inducing single note that rings for a minute with minimal background noise. Then, complete industrial-goth mayhem. The crunching notes and synthesized chords create an impenetrable wall of tortured noise that would surely appeal to some film student looking for a soundtrack to his (or her) gritty, black and white low budget film. Outside of that slim portion of the population, I don’t see a bunch of you out there falling all over each other to pick this thing up.
