Mind boiling🔥🧠 album. Most avant-garde music of the year, IMO. It’s fun, it’s hard, it’s danceable AF. Nothing is overproduced. The use of twisted vocals as instruments is such a beautiful leitmotif.
This is the most inspired and inspiring techno i’ve heard in some time. Makes me want the pandemic to be over sooner. This will be a Classic record for me personally
Favorite track: Clang 2.
"In place of 'sound,' 'sound-configuration', or 'musical idea'... I propose the word clang - to be understood to refer to any sound or sound configuration which is perceived as a primary musical unit-a
singular aural gestalt."
- James Tenney, 'Meta-Hodos'
Clang is a term coined by American Composer, James Tenney to describe a musical unit composed of discreet elements that come together to form a cohesive and singular sonic event. By creating sounds as clearly defined shapes, coming together to make bombastic and clearly defined forms - this record can be thought of as a sonic cartoon aimed not at as sophisticated sonic experience, but sophisticated perceptual one.
