Boomkat Product Review:
Wicked generative head-floss from Brooklynite Mick Sussman, making his mark on Superpang with a playful suite of contrasting results from his SuperCollider exploits
Pairing angular, animated ‘Preludes’ with their darker ‘Postludes’, Sussman revels in the ridiculousness and chaos of electronic music at its freakiest here. Letting the computer speak its mind with only a little human encouragement, the artist presents a series of fascinating confessions spilling its algorithmic beans between the plughole gunk of ‘Prelude 1’ and its gnawing ‘Postlude 1’, before enacting what sounds like a clanger orgy in ‘Prelude 2’, with Postlude 2’ modelling their post-shag tristesse in cold tonal guilt. ‘Prelude 3’ feels to mimic a pair of geese squabbling over the last bit of soggy bread in the pond, before they shoot laser beams at each other in ‘Postlude 3’, and ‘Prelude 4’ sounds like ducks on a trampoline, before opening up the the black hole dynamics of ‘Postlude 4’. Get a bag of mushies in you and this will sound amazing, espeically to fans of Markus Schmickler, Florian Hecker, EVOL.
