Boomkat Product Review:
Deepchord’s Rod Modell and Viennese sound artist Marit Wolters’ induce ur states of mind with 74 mins of amniotic sound suspension for Italy’s excellent Silentes programme.
Following Modell’s thrilling change of tack into rapid techno on ‘Captagon’ in 2019, he again expands his palette here with a subtler fusion of his most ephemeral atmospheric timbres and Marit Wolters’ micro-sound design to endlessly nuanced and evolving/involving degrees. Any semblance of chord structures are less distinct now, smudged into a static but unfathomable infinity where it’s true that still waters run super deep.
Patient reception (preferably at night) will be rewarded with a finely gradiated fade into phosphorescing sferics and chasmic infrasound riddled with haptic rustle that fingerprint the breathtaking synthetic environment with a human, or even alien, haptic touch. One for the believers, and followers of anything from Bellows to uon or Pinkcourtesyphone.
