As I was busy on packing boxes and criticizing another study highliting recurrent chords in popular music that Axel Helios sent me, some tracks from Alva Noto were in charge of the sound design of my living room. Which made my roommate’s groove addict ears feel quite concerned about the health of my laptop (first entity in the whole creation to ever cumulate the status of IA and the condition of zombie). This basic cause/consequence effect we all know led me to the decision of playing something else.
This decision definitely changed the pattern of the day (and maybe switched my 2 brain hemispheres, no big deal), and here are the two parameters implied.
VALANCE DRAKES (aka Mussck) – Fallen Innocence [BK -K 028] For those among you who have never heard of his previous work, Mussck is a kind of IDM genius living in UK, already responsible for an almost uncountable amount of project, and who was the first to send us a track when we started our Unlog Complex #1 project. Available today as a free download release on the Japanese label Bunkai-Kei recordings, this 8 tracks project is one of those that literally takes all your short and long term available brain space to teach you one again what a single sound can carry as a texture, an entity, a part of a story. I didn’t expect to sound so poetic at that part of the day but yeah, that’s exactly what I mean to say right now. Judge by yourselves.
Once the previous album over, you still ask yourself "what should play next? What’s the meaning of all that?". At that moment, it’s great to have another digger friend in the person of VNDL who forwarded me 20 hours before an amazing EP, which would perfectly match in that precise moment. I pressed play again : I was right, second musical slap with this Myriapod EP. I really can’t wait to hear more from him released on a forward looking label.
Follow that link for more, we’re reaching a moment in which more words would be worthless, your ears would do a better job than me and my keyboard right now.
Yet, there’s an obvious connection between you reading this blog and me writing this article, which might lead you to associate those two releases in the same playlist too.
Just give it a try.
I’m back my own music. Boxes can wait. Everything can wait now.
