Boomkat Product Review:
Wonderfully nuanced debut of modular sorcery by Zürich’s Noémi Büchi, recalling the playful mechanisms of Bruno Spoerri and the dreamy inventions of Suzanne Ciani, but with craftily fluid, organic modernism
In six succinct parts Büchi puts her studies of Electro-acoustic Composition and a keen ear for fiddly sounds at the service of a distinctive, otherworld style. Also drawing inspiration from the hills and forests near where she lives in Switzerland, the emergent composer demonstrates an alchemical way with making synthetic sounds feel natural, ecological, slipping from wryly bittersweet tunings and rippling metallic percussion in the first part, to sloshing syncopated bleeps in the 2nd, and purring polyrhythmelodies recalling Georgia and Kassem Mosse in the 3rd. The floating, impossible structures of ‘Tap04’ recall Laurel Halo’s earliest works, but with a slippery modular flesh of her own patenting, and you can colour us enchanted with the lissom, piquant beauty of her closing piece, recalling Rashad Becker via Orphan Fairytale.
Deffo one to keep an ear on!
