Label: Le Petit Machiniste
Time: 48 min.
Style: Rhythmic Noise
This record opens my mind with the almost "dance" sound of fan blades rotating, gradually increasing for several minutes. If you turn it up all the way you can hear the actual sound of the blades and the spinning, and if you give it any kind of serious EQ boost you will get a speaker-destroying rumble. The sonics on the first track of this record are very physical, personal and internal. The extreme sonics go into a rhythmic noise realm that is very disturbing in sound and funny in nature. The use of live fan-blade manipulation as backing source material of brutal rhythmic noise amplified electronics stems from an innocent exploration of sounds that fascinated the composer from a very young age. The explosive vocal patterns and shouting compositions in some ways recall Markus earlier works with techno and noise, but always within the extremely individualized and unique lens that this formation of Markus work has materialized into. I have just discovered a little gem and I recommend this album for those who love rhythmic noise and powernoise.
