Boomkat Product Review:
Tidy sound design-focused deconstructed soundscrapes from French producer A/N (formerly known as Apollo Noir). One 4 fans of Lanark Artefax (where r u pal?), Shapednoise, Stroboscopic Artefacts etc.
Harking from the French steel city of Thiers, A/N has good reason to make music that sounds like bent and broken machinery floating thru a weightless void. The album's seemingly incomprehensible title is a deconstruction of the French word for steel (acier), setting the stage for a record that pulls apart the concept of metalworking aesthetically and conceptually. A/N balances his glitched-aut, gurgling grids of mangled percussion with casual bursts of euphoria, like cotton-wool pads on the electro-tinged 'Avouer Condamner', or "LP5"-era AE frozen shimmers on 'Fer Forgé'.
Elsewhere, harsh digital particles shift with sprayed vocals, rich analog textures and live drums, courtesy of Seb Forrester. It's an engaging atmosphere that will remind you of late '00s world-building from EOG and Einóma, bridging those worlds to the contemporary deconstructed islands of Shapednoise or Lanark Artefax.
