Boomkat Product Review:
Jon Wesseltoft and Lasse Marhaug conduct computer and electronics in a killer 2hr+ piece of glacial, mind-bending raga-like drone for Superpang
So, this is what Norwegians get up to during the winter months of darkness; taking all the time they need to achieve other states of consciousness and visit other planes of bent mind reality via stringent electronic practice. OK, maybe it’s just these two Norwegians, but we’d also be tempted to do this if sunlight fucked off for 6 months or more.
It’s probably accepted that you’re not going to grasp the whole piece from samples, but we can assure that with durational listening the nearly 10 year old work exerts heavy drone traction thru its extremely long arc of phase shifting tones, with results reminding to the concentration of works by Éliane Radigue, or perhaps more aptly the just intonation explorations of C.C. Hennix and the roiling widescreen of Roland Kayn, especially in the burningly intense latter section. Amazing, really.
