applied the aesthetic of glitch electronica to dance-music
on Arrivals (2009).
Gentle ambient drones disturbed by harsh dissonant noises lay the foundation
for the thin beats and deep rumbles of
like a collaboration between
and a new-age artist of the 1970s,
a Detroit techno artist of the 1980s,
The conceptual study Pissing About is emblematic of how
abstract futuristic music into warm pulsing organisms.
The ping-pong beat of I Am A Crooked Man is smothered in
sinister cello-like drones and industrial clangor, each using the other
to morph into a more propulsive robotic pattern in a field of loud distorions.
The timbric concerto
You're In My Thoughts, instead, documents the preference for
somewhat sloppy tones, both in the beats and in the drones.
A similar lesson is taught in All Things But You Are Silent,
although here the emphasis leans towards the ambience rather than the
Arrivals is the psychedelic tour de force that almost reneges on
everything that the album has just displayed. The beats move to the background,
while an eerie voice and a wild guitar distortion stage an existential duet.
