Boomkat product review for:

jim haynes - The Wires Cracked

San Francisco's Jim Haynes proves the perfect candidate for release on Editions Mego with the engrossing ambient noise elements of 'The Wires Cracked'. I'll admit to only arriving at The Helen Scarsdale Agency proprietor's output relatively late in his oeuvre, around the time of his bleakly detached and stoic 'Sever' (2009) and 'The Decline Effect' (2010) LPs, and both have since become staples in my go-to shelf for visceral, elemental, modern electro-acoustics. Paying uncannily close attention to texture and space in his vividly volatile arrangements, Haynes' work here simulates dense yet minimalist ecologies of gusty, unpredictable dynamics, sedimentary textures and tectonic drones, re-sculpting field recordings of desert winds and cooling apparatus at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory operated by Stanford University along with other sounds gleaned from processes now lost to the ether, and, like he says, "That's probably for the best, since these various parts speak to an existential rupturing, the collapse of the self, the aftershocks of dark energy, and a belief in the hop for renewal." As works of "rough hewn beauty", they almost feel as though they could be documentation of natural phenomena, not organised compositions, such is their cinematic appeal and the sleight of his textural attrition, maintaining a certain suspense of disbelief that makes for the most immersive, detached experience throughout all three parts. Recommended!
