Boomkat Product Review:
AA0002 is the first in a brilliant series of uncompromisingly fresh, new, experimental electronic releases from Malmö’s FLUF label, which only started in late summer 2017 and now has more than 10 diverse and killer releases to its name.
It’s an unflinching introduction to both the label and Empathic Window, an artist hailing from Buffalo, New York who terms his own releases as “Pointless (but not soulless) audio experiments and non-music”.
That’s a fair description of this release, which yields a severely cryptic maze of atonal shudders and chaotic prangs in the highly detailed electro-acoustic dynamics of 0002A, then with a more violent blast of munted vocals, white noise and rabid yet crisply jagged madness in 0002AA.
Heavily satisfying gear for more insatiable listeners, then.
