Boomkat Product Review:
N.M.O.'s electronic half, Rubén Patiño, flies solo on Anòmia with a batch of "impulsive edits realized in trains, airports, buses, living rooms, public libraries and temporary bedrooms in Western Europe." Birthed from a series of recordings made at the Danish Institute of Electronic Music in Aarhus, 2009, the results were initially abandoned, left to marinate since 2009, and are now mercifully retrieved for your entertainment. As you'd hope and expect from Pato, they're cerebral but cheeky pieces, existing in a lineage of skewed avant-garde research and practice twisting between early electronic music and unorthodox free-form. Head-flossing stochastic scrawl could be said to mimic an aviary of munted parakeets in 'New Atlantic Ursonate', whereas the probing, penetrative psycho-acoustic tones of 'Universal Dental Poverty' just reminded me to book an appointment.
