Boomkat Product Review:
The first release on Chained Library, an icily minimal and pointed suite of industrial ambient electronics recalling the styles of Werkbund, Litüüs, The Radiophonic Workshop
Recorded 2012-2013 and first issued on tape in 2014, [..(].’s ‘Unnamed’ session feels only half-human in the best way, as simple gestures appear to become automated and spiral out into slinky permutations of their minimalist parameters, with only the slightest nudges giving variation to their hypnotic shapes. That applies to much of the tape, form the singed gauze of ‘A1’ thru the pulsing arps of ‘A2’ and the criss-crossing liens of ‘A5’, thru the Delia Derbyshire-like tones of ‘B1’, but if you’re still paying attention tot he end you’ll be rewarded with the fuller phrasing of ‘B5’. Enigmatic is the word.
