Boomkat Product Review:
Absorbingly dissonant and cranky electronic sound designs from Mark Clifford (Seefeel) and Loops Haunt’s Oto Hiax duo. Working together for most of this decade, Oto Hiax have arrived at a spectral conception of electronica fascinated by glassy electro-acoustic tones and fluid textures that create strangely alluring, dissonant transitions and junctures in their second outing following a self-titled 2017 debut. Make sure to check the curdling, airborne coruscations of ‘Overcurve’ and the brilliantly warped ambient clangour of ‘Scutter’ for strongest examples of their current sound, especially if you like The Sprawl, Second Woman or Cam Deas.
“‘Two’ expands the duo’s unique take on spectral synthesis incorporating a diverse amount of approaches to experimental sound. Two expounds a hybrid mix of acoustic based audio design, ambient tonality, sound effects, music, abstraction and world’s hybrid video game soundtrack.
There is something of an onomatopoeia quality to the release as the six tracks take on the character of their individual title. Silt, Dapple, Overcurve, Scutter, Strain and Plates appear as extremely well executed versions of the inferred intent of their namesake. This inquisitive approach will appeal to those interested in the more exploratory end of sound production providing hope as newly formed methods and colours are exposed from the duo’s contemporary audio tactics.
Seasoned veterans can lie in a bed of laurels whereas ‘Two’ is an exemplary release revelling in the enthusiasm that comes from the joy of unabated exploration.”
