Boomkat Product Review:
A four-part electro-acoustic/post-techno opus composed on the Buchla modular synth at Stockholm’s EMS by Berlin-based sound artist + composer Yair Elazar Glotman. RIYL Tim Hecker, Roly Porter, Thomas Köner.
“KETEV is the realm in which Berlin based sound artist Yair Elazar Glotman employs his unique ambient technoid soundscapes to explore the balance between darkness and light, fragility and strength, and tension and release. 'Traces of Weakness' follows up the solo contrabass LP 'Études' for Subtext records, and continues to expand on the themes explored on previous KETEV albums for Where To Now and Opal Tapes. 'Traces of Weakness' was recorded at EMS Stockholm using their Buchla Modular Synth, and processed with reel-to-reel tape manipulations including personal archived field recordings”
