Boomkat Product Review:
The Salanthé Wall forms a compelling introduction to the fractious, gyroscopic sound designs of Japan's Kazuki Koga, offered by Apothecary Compositions.
No easy way to grasp this slippery, morphing beast, but helpfully it is presented as both an original, 18-and-a-half minute piece, and also broken down into 12 component parts, manageably dissected into 1 and 2 minute chunks.
We're best comparing its structures and flow with work by like-minded artists such as Amnesia Scanner, Rabit, TCF or Evian Christ, or even Mumdance, Logos and Shapednoise's The Sprawl, but all at once, and on top of each other.
If you like really intense Japanese computer games or ever imagined hard-wiring yourself to the internet; this one's for you.
