Boomkat Product Review:
Synth Sense shape up an epic 2nd album of sci-fi sound designer D&B/electronica for Auxiliary. 'Perfect Symmetry' follows an impressive curve of refinement from their debut album, 'Tomorrow's World', thru the ambitious 'Fragments From An Infinite Space', and the tricked-out techno of 'Symbol #09' to really define their sound at its most abstract, amorphous and immersive. Covering 20 tracks in 72 minutes, it's practically feature-length in terms of both scope and scale and is thusly arranged with a Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack's attention to synaesthetic detail, from the lighting and depth of field to the narrative logic and textural movement. In a (synth) sense, we can draw contemporary parallels between this sound and the likes of Raime, Demdike Stare or ASC on a "darkside" level, and also make fair comparison between their more twisted elements and the post-D&B/noise dynamics of Mumdance, Logos and Shapednoise's new project, The Sprawl as much as classic FSOL scapes and vintage H.I.A.
