Boomkat Product Review:
Grubby, slimy dread slugs produced on a no input mixer by Zurich’s Simon Grab, hitting a squelch rut of sub 100bpm torpor for the -OUS label
“Simon Grab’s «Extinction» is the opening act of his long-term project «Pulse», in which he creates soundscapes and noises of an imagined posthuman environment.
His dark organic sonic creatures build up on a dense conglomeration of pulsating frequencies, produced with a reduced «no-input-mixing» setup. The self-oscillating system unveals a vast richness of notorious feedbacks, bursts of noise and tender tones. The signals speak in their own voices as they incarnate the network of machines they originate from.
As the status quo is defined as temporary and transient, Simon Grab captures the sound of his circuits in live recording sessions.”
