Boomkat Product Review:
From the excellent Bine label, a sometime Raster Noton affiliated imprint, comes this follow up to one of our stealth discoveries of last year, the wonderful Benjamin Brunn CD. ‘Skizzen’ is a more self conscious, ‘difficult’ affair, but when has this ever deterred us! Divided into almost random series of numbers and letters, the tracks range from short to interlude in length, making for a beguiling patchwork of sound and textures. The tunes seem to work on the mind exactlky because of this minute process of accretion. Reference points would certainly include Raster, as well as the discerning minimalism of Taylor Duepree and Richard Chartier, somewhere between the more contemplative moments of 12k and the noisier end of the Line imprint.
