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.
CD – 12K/Microsuoni
Suspended and refined sound acrobatics for Taylor Deupree in ‘Northern’, from the State of New York, much quieter than Brooklyn, where this artist worked and lived for several years. Diluted textures, loops and field recordings, electric piano, guitar and subdued iterated melodies, a nice balance of synthetic and introspective nature. The inspiration is directed with subtlety, simple and chaotic at once, with elegant scores and sounds that are never insisted in a single direction, feeling always concrete. It’s a good production, his first solo since January 2004, and the first one for 12K since ‘Stil’, released in 2002.
