Boomkat Product Review:
Stephan Mathieu's latest Line release is an hour long composition reprocessing original material from Janek Schaefer's 'Extended Play'. It was created between September 2008 and October 2010 using an entropic setup, spectral analysis and convolution processes. Not without good reason, Stephan is practically revered by many electro-acoustic advocates. His incredibly subtle, microscopic particle arrangements are heard uninterrupted in this piece which unfolds with the organic, life-affirming nature of a gradual sunrise over a vast desert plain, picking out glints of light from individual grains of sand while suffusing his infinite scapes with caramelized drones and mirage-like spectral strings. This is sublime music crafted for meditative consumption. Highly recommended.
