Boomkat Product Review:
Curd Duca follows up last year's "Waves 1", his first album in two decades, with another flawless examination of sound and texture, contorting church bells, percussion, musical samples and field recordings methodically - and often humorously.
While other experimental artists can sound as if they're attempting to lift lead weights over their heads, Duca is content flicking feathers into their faces. After his impressive 1990s/00s run on Normal and Mille Plateaux, he disappeared for 20 years before emerging from the aether last year. Now we get to hear part two of his proposed trilogy, and it's no slouch - 32 hypnotizing sonic experiments that range from burbling synth interferences and sequenced Mark Fell-esque FM trickery to microtonal flute music and processed traffic sounds.
"Waves 2" is a hallucinatory experience, like a collage of mixtape assembled by one of the masters of the form, splicing together psychedelic synthesized wind sounds into cavernous glass percussion and granulated noise that suddenly cuts into tin pan clangs.
