Boomkat product review for:

christopher bissonnette - In Between Words

This Canadian ambient composer follows-up his wonderful Kranky debut album, Periphery, with an evolved approach to orchestral/electronic soundscaping. For this latest set of compositions Bissonnette augments his electronic tones with a prominent use of field recordings and various spatially engaging sonic elements, such as the zen-like processed bell chimes of 'Tempest' or the symphonic precipitation heard on 'Orffyreus Wheel'. In keeping with this fusion of man-made ambience with sources from the natural world, 'A Touch Of Heartbreak' is (syn)aesthetically like some frost-covered surface, impenetrable and steady - rich in textures that sound neither quite organic, nor electronic, leaving you in an ambiguous between-space, part real, part synthetic. In Between Words is somewhere between the accessible cinematics mapped out by the likes of Deaf Center or Marsen Jules, and the more abstract foggy expanses of drone you'd hear from fellow Canadian Kranky artist, Tim Hecker. This album is a notable step forward from 'Periphery', demonstrating a maturity and diversification of techniques, all of which suggests Bissonnette is an artist you'd be well advised to invest your time in. High;y Recommended.
