Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin based purveyers of musical oddness Zeitkrazer continue their ‘Old School’ releases with this tribute to big daddy of minimalism Alvin Lucier. As you might expect, the ensemble who took Lou Reed’s stunning ‘Metal Machine Music’ to brave new places yanks Lucier’s original pieces and brings them right into the new school. One of the most striking pieces is ‘Music for Piano with Magnetic Strings’, which takes sustained piano string notes and layers them to create harmonic clouds of sound. The results take us from lulling and gorgeous to almost painful, and puts many contemporary drone acts to shame with its disciplined resolve. Elsewhere ‘Opera With Objects’ takes the repetitive clicking and clanking of sourced objects and builds them into a flurry of sound, bounding from left to right in the stereo field resulting in something affecting and deeply unusual.
