Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin’s Grischa Lichtenberger does jazzy IDM origami with post-techno rhythms and avant-pop voices to fold in the space between Amnesia Scanner and LP5-era Autechre.
"This release is the opening to a five-part complex of works by artist grischa lichtenberger. The single tracks and their components are constantly ruptured, disassembled and reassembled again. some passages allude to a weird fractured version of pop music, others may evoke associations to a disjointing music box, to something mechanical that is not working as it should. the time signatures of the tracks are constantly subjected to a mangling and squelching process, all the while keeping a constant rhythmical flow.
in his very own way, grischa lichtenberger is examining limits, new experiences and unfulfilling expectations. this unfilteredness and rawness, the lack of a target group the music is made for, is what is fascinating about this record. »LA DEMEURE; il y a péril en la demeure« thus becomes a luxurious-kafkaesque collection of materials, an uncensored archive of a seeker.”
