TBR: 15th December
Microtonal music is something of the modern age, now with digital technology we can mathematically tune instruments to miniscule yet resonant fractions of the traditional musical scale. Called colundi, this musical style has been pioneered by a handful of sound scientists who are passionate about experimentation and pushing the boundaries of musical theory.
Finnish waveform wizard Aleksi Perälä has been a fundamental driving player in the colundi circuit, famously utilising the sound for his array of releases. The new long play release is no different, once again the mysterious and novel world of the musical microcosm is revealed and it shows us even more directions and modes of composition that blow the mind.
With non descriptive track names, ranging from Gblft1740065-74, the music is perhaps left untainted by the perceptions of the composer, leaving a blank slate for our imagination to put sound to picture and sensation. They also give a hint of the artistic and technical nature of what has been produced. What is produced, however, is a pleasurable surge through pacey and appreciative rhythms and harmonised melodies.
A techno feel dresses the bare bones which are knitted together by electro style simplistic but intense drum loops. Synth tones undulate and coalesce in serpentine motions giving a layer of magical anticipation over an otherwise happy and motivated beat. Party experiments like this always go down well in rooms full of people, non invasive but sonically interesting lay-downs drip with character and swagger.
Playful synthesiser expressions drizzle in gluey and multi-jointed slinky manoeuvres while a well balanced bass and treble section rotate in ever steady dances, which gracefully adjust with each throw of passes as the sun moves from one side to the other. Some fascinating sounds mix in with fun and enchanting upbeat dance music, producing a rendition of the classic formula with more than a dash of extra spirit from the realms of eclectic sound production.
