Boomkat Product Review:
This was the release in the Carbon Series that immediately preceded the excellent fourth volume by 12k's Jodi Cave. As with the Cave release this is limited to a mere 200 copies and sowcases some highly disciplined electronic minimalism. Opener 'File_Sharing Recycler' isn't quite indicative of the other pieces on the album - It's more openly rhythmic and is far less abstract than something like the highly adventurous 'Neo 1099 Pt. 1' a thorough dissection of cutting edge digital editing techniques and subtle noise-making over a quarter-hour period. After the comparatively brief 'Neo 4' - a piece which sounds for all the world like an early Fennesz emission, Rosner takes on 'Pt. 2', producing some more infinitesimally small sonic sculptures for you to marvel at. The final piece here 'Neo Fragment 3' concentrates on droning, washed-out noise as made popular by Basinski et al, bringing an exciting, if very quiet album to a dignified hush. Lovely.
