Boomkat product review for:

alog - Miniatures

One of Rune Grammofon's most admired pairings (featuring Dag-are Haugan and Espen Sommer Eide, aka Phonophani) return for their anticipated third album - "Miniatures". Despite the descriptive gesture of its title, this is an album that's as much concerned with the slow evolution of sound-pieces as it is with their scale. The individual components that make this noise are, indeed, sonic miniatures that are assembled and re-configured in a manner not entirely disimillar to that perfected by Nobokazu Takemura at the end of the last decade, morphing Steve Reich's effortlessly dogmatic approach to looping with a quasi-repetetive stutter that eventually frees itself into something more fluid and melodic. These are hugely absorbing sounds - a close listen will leave you unable to determine quite what you're listening to - the recording containing an organic quality that's instantly at odds with the seemingly digital method of assembly. These are sounds that fully come to life when listed to with headphones - the detail in every stretch here truly inspired, allowingy ou to make much more sense of the detail alluded to in the title. Amazing.
