Boomkat Product Review:
Modestly rustic, crackling and low-key modern classical from Oliver Alary (Ensemble) and his longtime spar Johannes Malfatti (Transformer Di Roboter)
While ‘u, i’ is Alary and Malfatti’s first joint release under their own names, it’s far from their first work together, following as it does decades of work as Ensemble for Rephlex and Fat Cat featuring likes of Cat Power and Lou Barlow, and a rich seam of film soundtrack projects.
Now on FatCat’s refined sibling, 130701, they conjure and in-between-worlds sound that reminds us of the likes of The Humble Bee and The Boats, exploring a grey area where neo classical gestures elide with experimental techniques and, perhaps most craftily, contemporaneously, allows for the infidelities of accidents generated by VOIP, or Voice Over Internet Protocol, whose compression lends a smudged and very much up to date watermark of modernity to their timeless yet anachronistic aesthetics.
