Boomkat product review for:

strangeloop - Fields

The seemingly unending slew of Brainfeeder releases continues with this ambitious EP/mini-album project from Strangeloop, aka LA-based "live-cinema artist" David Wexler. Building on the promise and precepts of his 2010 A/V release 2010:[or] How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Technological Singularity, this latest eschews the slouchy beats we readily associate with Flying Lotus's label in favour of astrally-inclined, druggy minimalism, like Steve Reich on a Carl Sagan via Timothy Leary tip. 'Plants Inside' sets the scene - washed-out video game arpeggios, frosted chimes and eerie pulsations iterated across a shifting bed of marimba loops - leading to the plangent, IDM-inflected ambient of 'Ghostlines' and the epic,12-minute chillwave techno excursion 'Becoming Fields'. Apparently inspired by an actual experience of altered consciousness, the three tracks that comprise Fields are literally designed to correspond to three phases of a trip: "initial birth and constellation, death/dissolution and a transcendtal union of both". There are bespoke visual accompaniments to the music, available both for purchase with the EP, and online. Potty as it all might seem on first inspection, you can tell a lot of consideration and artistry has gone into the realisation of this work, and it's enhanced by contributions from Brainfeeder's resident classical/jazz prodigy Austin Peralta and vocalists Vanessa Fernandez and Anna Gariby. Well worth investigating.
