Boomkat Product Review:
Idiosyncratic sound artist Felix Kubin presents an album of radioactivated Techno phonics for the Its label. Backed with a press release reading like an extract from a Philip K Dick short story (included below for the nerds), Felix offers the findings of ten experiments with the TXRF method and a stripped down set-up of MS20 synth, SQ10 sequencer, Sherman2 and Electrix Repeater. The results, to our ears at least, sound something like Conrad Schnitzler cracking atoms with KPLR; a ten track set of discombobulated, spitting Techno rhythms and fizzing electronic particles arranged in complex, irregular patterns. It's visceral, pure and wildly unpredictable. Well recommended, "Total Reflection X-ray Fluorescence (TXRF) is a method used to analyze the surfaces of materials by firing extremely flat X-rays. Subsequently, the physicist Joachim Knoth (1941-2004) developed a patent for precise measurement of defects in semiconductor chips. In 10 sequenced based electronic miniatures, Felix Kubin, who presently consists of dangerous uninsulated powerlines, conducts the TXRF through an acoustical test arrangement. The experiment consists solely of a synthesizer, filter and sequencer. Full-bodied consecutive organisms arise out of which kaleidoscopic irridescent blossoms bloom. At times they appear as acoustic by-products of high energy discharges on an X-ray picture and sometimes as quiescent fluorescent images. Who knows when this experiment will come to an end? Will X-rays break at irregularities? Will transparent ears crawl over fixtures and make laboratory benches corrode? In view of the entire event's musical beauty, all these questions are completely unimportant."
