Boomkat product review for:

borden, ferraro, godin, halo & lopatin - FRKWYS Vol. 7

**U.S. underground supergroup Feat Oneohtrix, Laurel Halo, Ferraro and more.** RVNG Intl have assembled one of their most exciting editions for vol. 7 of the Frkwys series, which has previously seen pairings between Pyschic Ills and Juan Atkins, and ARP with Anthony Moore, among others. This one started as a mutual appreciation of David Borden's 'Music For Amplified Keyboard Instruments' between Daniel "OPN" Lopatin and the label, and soon evolved into this modern day super troupe of synth stars; highly regarded film and TV composer, Samuel Godin, far-out savant James Ferraro, electronic dreamer Laurel Halo, and Lopatin, collaborating with the venerable Borden. The sessions were entirely improvised and recorded between august and december of 2010 and sound little short of incredible. Their "Ensemble synth explorations for other green worlds" feature distinct elements of each players sound, but it's difficult, and probably pointless to try and pick them apart from the whole. It's hardly a competition, quite obviously, and they've balanced their contributions accordingly to create five sumptuous pieces of star-gazing contemporary kosmische. It breaks down as two longer tracks divided into two sections, and a majestic final kiss off. They range from the glorious 12 minute expanse of 'People Of The Wind Pt.1' to more chaotic and alien expressions in 'Internet Gospel Pt. 2', and one truly captivating final dialogue on 'Twilight Pacific', and must surely rank as one of the more impressive records of its ilk this year. Recommended!
