Boomkat Product Review:
Pimmon, the prolific godfather of Australian electronics, makes an overdue and excellent contribution to Lawrence English's Room 40 imprint. 'The Oansome Orbit' is surely his most harmonically developed work to date, tempering his taste for distortion and electronic abstraction with a richer compositional bent which makes for an engrossing and unique listen. We'd best let Pimmon say a few words; "The Oansome Orbit is about connection and disconnection. In playing with micro loops of sound - macro listening worlds are made; universes of white noise wash, blurry melancholic tones, jagged granular debris. As all these seemingly disconnected sounds orbit each other, often I feel transported to somewhere vast - distant - majestic; yet in the process I feel a great sense of loss, being "oansome"." We can hear parallels in this rhetoric and aesthetic with everyone from Fennesz to Leyland Kirby, questing for a balance between the imperfection and reality of noise texture, and the celestial sublimation of grander intentions. And most importantly, he's achieved it to an often stunning degrees. Recommended!
