Boomkat Product Review:
Steve Hauschildt (Emeralds) fully embraces IDM-electronica as an extension of mathy, proggy synth music and jazz-fusion in ‘Nonlin’, his debut album for Ghostly International. RIYL Keith Fullerton Whitman, Richard Devine, Autechre.
Falling into the label’s self-created category of SMM, or Slow-Moving Music (as also explored in their recent ‘Thousands of Eyes In The Dark’ comp), with ‘Nonlin’ Hauschildt moves back into a gauzy middle distance between his early work with seminal synth outfit Emeralds, and his more filigree contemporary craft.
In nine parts the album approaches a more organic mix of post-techno/IDM impulses and layered electronic and acoustic spheres, neatly incorporating strings by cellist and fellow Chicagoan Lia Kohl on ‘Reverse Culture Music’, and exploring ‘LP5’ era Autechrian influences on his title track and the sloshing intricacies of ‘American Spiral’.
