Boomkat Product Review:
Causa Sui drummer is back with a third installment in his “drums versus synthesizers” explorations.
"Fully indulging in this strange form of vis-a-vis layered solo-jams, these tracks are alive in a very real sense - there’s an organic vibe present in which monophonic-synthesizers & polyphonic-rhythms merge in a way you’ve never heard before: Any reference to other music & genres gets warped and turned on it’s head, quicker than you can catch onto it - everything is weaved together in a fuzzed-out massive blanket of sound.
Yet despite the roar and volume, there’s a repetitive and meditative quality to these tracks- not unlike that of free jazz, or, say, the hypnotic beat-driven music Miles created when he got into Stockhausen in the 1970s. There’s even an earthy vibe ringing thru the heavily modulated synths - at times sounding more like soaring guitars or saxophones - or perhaps some un-earthly rhythm-device
that amalgamates rhythm and melody into one substance. This LP is a result of a multi- coloured vision that has soaked up a wide range of styles and merged them into something fresh and radiant - and frankly: quite groovy.
