Boomkat Product Review:
Arovane and small sound experimenter Porya Hatami yield absorbingly quiet, richly textured works to the indomitable Superpang
’Term’ is the duo’s 6th release since their collaborative debut ‘Resonance’ in 2015, and continues their investigations into electro-acoustic sonorities deep down the rabbit hole into curious drone space. The two 10 min pieces are an ideal addition to Superpang’s prolific run of the past two years, fittingly uncompromising and modestly nuanced in their pursuit of imaginary space and tone.
‘Term 1’ opens out a harmonically sound, dreamlike space whose sheer, fathomless contours are speckled with fractured pulses and gnawed by more menacing, if out of reach, noises that float and perfuse its gyring dimensions in illusory 3D. ‘Tape 2’ is more pensive and furtive in its development of what sounds like shivering harpsichord strings and a scary air vent interacting to produce pealing micro melodies and then congealing into tarry mass, characterising their mutual ability to animate abstract sound.
