Boomkat Product Review:
The field he operates in is a crowded one, but New York artist Seth Cluett's latest is executed with enough skill and feeling to stand out from the pack. On 'Objects In Stillness' snatches of bassoon, viola and guitar whisper and whine across a Spartan backdrop of sine tones, conjuring rural landscapes caught between seasons. 'A Murmur Which Redoubles' stretches out further into minimalist abstraction, summoning the work of Cluett's label-mate Richard Charthier, while 'Doleros (Audio Tourism At Ringing Rocks) combines frost-bitten drones with field recorded percussion - it's like eavesdropping on an ice age tribe fashioning weapons from wood and stone; industrial ambient for weather-beaten neanderthal man. 'Untitled (Objects Of Memory)' rounds out the package with a painstaking, time-stopping accumulation of tones that's striking in its delicacy and discipline. No fireworks here, just beautifully tremulous and thoughtful explorations of electro-acoustic sound. Fans of Oren Ambarchi's Touch albums and Fennesz at his most plaintive would do well to check this out.
