Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
2CD – Crónica
From Lithuania, via Crónica Electronica (Portugal), comes a double CD that’s explosive in its articulations of refined experimental sequences, minimal and abstract. It’s an incursion in post-techno territories by Gintas Kraptavicius, aka Gintas K, coherent and systematic in its structures, which aren’t immune from noise-industrial influences. In “Lengvai”, subdivided into five tracks, the rich harmonies flood us with their dynamics in highly fluctuating vibrations with a synthetic attitude. Wave envelopes, effects, clicks and glitches which sometimes flow together into thick rhythmic moments. “60 x One Minute Audio Colours”, recorded at a frequency of 2kHz, insists experimentally on ethereal but pressing infinitesimal variations. Absolute microsounds, acoustic substance for extreme and radical audio experiences.
