Boomkat Product Review:
Amsterdam-based American drummer and sound designer Frank Rosaly turns his attention towards tonality on this latest Panger.
Billed as the first volume of an intended three, 'Le Petit Verdon, Swiss Tower, True Value, 5.10a' is an attempt to process the "near-death experience", which Rosaly apparently experienced several times. Using a Roland JX-3P synth, an Elektron Rytm MKII drum machine and software, he extends mushy, pitch-skewed tones into blurry chimes, morphing the sound until it melts into syrupy, orchestral bliss. By the last few minutes, the composition almost sounds like a movie finale converted into a low-bitrate MP3, then bashed up on YouTube.
