Boomkat Product Review:
Chicago’s Brett Naucke pursues the organically evolving modular synthesis themes of Seed (Spectrum Spools, 2014) with a suite of beautifully trippy modular mutations in Executable Dreamtime, making up another exquisite entry to Mexico City’s Umor Rex label after sterling examples by Kara-Lis Coverdale and Driftmachine.
Each track is a lush modular ecology unto itself, generating and evolving singular patches of polyphonic auto-melody according to an oneiric logic of random note orders. The result is a glistening, absorbing array of mineral-like, crystalline tonal arrangements structured into strikingly gorgeous melodies and radiant ambient auras, each piece as lovely as the next and seemingly uncovering details of a wider panorama that’s never quite fully revealed, sorta like attempting to remember a dream and never quite grasping it, but leaving us more than happy to keep to trying.
