Boomkat Product Review:
Pole returns to the dub matrix with 'Wald', his first new album in eight years. In the meantime, the Berlin-based pioneer has busied himself in collaboration with Roll The Dice and various remix work beside his day job as a mastering engineer at the ~scape facilities. He returns to the fray now via several years of extended walks in the German countryside, forests and mountains - a consistently rich source of inspiration for his fellow, native electronic artists - which opened his mind and prompted him to make a record that closer reflected nature itself. The resulting 'Wald' ('Forest' in German) breaks down to three movements: firstly a trio of tracks establishing and mirroring the forest's spatial intricacy via sparse, overgrowing electronics; secondly a trio of tracks focussed on raw sounds - bird calls, rustling textures, woody drums and naturally discordant drones; followed by a 3rd and final section emulating nature's inherently psychedelic patterning in filigree yet barely harnessed matrices of echo, reverb and delay.
