Boomkat Product Review:
With his wonderful debut album still glowing brightly, Motion Graphics commits these two new gems of Peter Zummo or Steve Reich-esque minimalist studies for Future Times, the label run by his Lifted collaborator, Max D.
There’s no mistaking his reference points, but it’s the way in which he transposes their techniques onto the glassy idents of scrolling digital menu sounds that sets the pieces apart from their precedents.
With Brass Mechanics he summons a spiralling, vertical vortex of pizzicato wind instrumentation and pointillist clicks sounding like one of the lush, swooning phrases from his album or the Lifted project has been expanded and flipped upwards to the sun.
Tarahumara licks zippy woodwind in deliquescent loops and swallow diving figures on the flipside, folding the phrases into a bittersweet frenzy of rapid fluctuations and harmonic clusters that leave us light headed.
