Airy, soft electronics drift gently together and apart. A weave of synth sounds caress then dwindle. Electronic voice and wind slowly twist and fade. A pallette of slightly churning, attack-less electro wash holds base for skinny sawtoothed stabs.
Arpegiated keys move quickly, setting a fast tempo in common time. The melody moves through the lines accompanied by sparse FM sounding percussion and winds of breathy synth.
Faded, delayed feedback curls quickly into itself allowing a melodic synth line to build shape – accrue mass and repeat. It lolls along at a slow pace as more and more textures are added.
On the whole, each piece is somewhat short for the form of addition composition being employed. Each piece ends quickly in reference to it’s slow build, without much attention being payed to resolution. Although this accrual method doesn’t really include much tension, things stay neatly in time and key signature. The sounds used are plesant and do not venture far from soft sine waves with very low attack. The created atmospheric sounds hold aloft an imaginative softness that is supported throughout the tape.
The album art work and included photograph are for me, the most compelling aspects of this release. The included photograph is a softened black and white image of a crumpled piece of paper printed on card stock. I am unsure of it’s relationship to the sounds on the cassette because the image itself seems spontaneous, lurid and ominous – wheras the music is controlled and plesant sounding.
