Montibus Communitas biography
MONTIBUS COMMUNITAS (Mountains Community) is a free form/uncompromising communal project led by the Peruvian musician, writer and philosopher BRAYAN. Born in 2011, the community is influenced ideologically by teachings of traditions such as Buddhism, Taoism, Gnostic Christianism, Andean Cults, Hinduism, etc, as well as other esoteric traditions. The community is well known for its particular approach to music, using the idea of ''spontaneity'' and ''constant change'' to such aspects as songs to be played, the band members and the instruments to be used.

Some of the persons that have been envolved in the project are Paul (VIRGEN SIDERAL), Anna, Sergio (SILVER MORNINGS), Pedro (TRIO NUNA), Giancarlo (LIQUIDARLO CELULOIDE), Carlos (LA IRA DE DIOS, DRONE ACCELERATOR), Tete, Efrain (LA MECÁNICA POPULAR), Herrmann (JACKO WACKO, VIAJEROS, HAMANN), etc.

Review by The Mystical

— First review of this album —
2 stars "Alive" is a live album from Montibus Communitas. The recording here is not of horrendous quality, but it is not very easy to listen to, particularly since the playing here is rather messy (which is usually not a bad thing for me). The instrumentation is great. As well as the guitars, drums, organ and bass, we have violin, flute, the quena (a south american flute), and a variety of percussion instruments. There is some great improvisation, but at various times throughout the album the music seems to go nowhere.

The live recording is split into five jams. The first is the longest, clocking just over 20 minutes. The first 4 minutes of this jam are just sensational. The sound is lush and fresh, and the band manage to create some really ethereal atmospheres. Unfortunately the music seems to go downhill. There is some nice percussion improvisation, but it doesn't really go anywhere. The jam then continues with some violin improvisation, bringing the album to an atmospheric close. The second jam continues the album on an avant-garde and boring note, with a drum beat that starts plodding and ends franticly and without a strong sense of rhythmic structure. The third track is another messy jam, and this time it is a little painful to the ears. This one is driven by heavily distorted guitar and bass. The fourth jam is in my opinion the best on the album. This track continues the messiness of the previous tracks, only the band use this to create wave-like textures that sweep back and forward. The final jam is not as good as the fourth, but it continues the album in a similar ethereal direction, creating another wonderful atmosphere.

Despite it's major flaws this album is not bad. There are some great atmospheres created here, but I would recommend it only to collectors and fans of Indo-Prog or Psychedelic/Space Rock.

2.5 stars.

4 stars What a Peruvian nature danger.

Extreme beauty even in deep mysterious weirdness. Scattered air launched via simple but infernal keyboard shocking riffs should accelerate their fuzzy energetic volcanic eruption. Continual irritable dissonance can get consonant step by step eventually ... cannot realize what be happening there (who knows) ... their eerie eccentricity, oozing with hot blood, has let us know that via the first trip "Amaru" (anyway, this trip may be only a prologue so far, I guess).

We should be completely veiled with something like a sticky ghost from the beginning, and yes, the real eruption gets started after the prologue. Exactly kaleidoscopic nature here and there. Sounds of stream flow, splendid harmony by insects, bird chirping, cool texture of wind ... "beautiful nature" indeed, veiled with weird music fuzz. "Semilla" the last warm resort produced with hearty strings and soft percussive passion, can escort us into another psychedelic green grass. Never polished nor symphonized but well-matured together, every sound has got. The key word should be "harmony with natural beauty", methinks.

All we can say through the whole album is, that they can play mysterious graceful "natural beauty" even based upon discordant psychedelic music agents seasoned with trippy synthesizer, floating flowery flute, simple keyboard oil, and shouts / voices in another space like inner Orient. Every passion drenched in their dreamy fantasy gets enthusiastic aggressively and at last disappears just like a flame of a candle or flower fire upon a sparkler ... and we always feel comfortable into a green air. Why can't we say this phenomenon as a nature danger. Addiction really.

Love it. :)
