Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin’s experimental electronic figurehead elides his DJ practice and passion for avant classical music with a finely paced and layered reassembly of samples from his vast library of C.20th avant garde recordings
‘Acustica’ yields his acoustic sources-only, hour long mix, previously broadcast as Unrushed episode 056, broken into its constituent sections. Thematically linked to his dissection and reassembly of Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Le Sacre du Printemps’ found on his Macro label, this one delves further into the avant classical realm with a conceptual approach as solution to too much choppy, stop/start and sterile works in this arena, using his background in DJing and techno to make the elements gel better and produce a more fluid listening experience.
The work thus finds some parallels in the likes of Andy Votel’s recent ‘Études du Metal Ortolan’ and Black To Comm works, but plotted with a certain Berlin elegance as he traverses the disparities and convergences of seven decades of score-based music in a meta-level polystylistic work that explores vast potentials of integration, interaction and interference. Don’t expect any regular pulse, but do let yourself in for a immersive ride as aspects of minimalism, spectral music, and extended tekkerz swarm and dither in its enchanting mass.
