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 – Glacial Movements
The aesthetic in the six dilated and elegant tracks forming this new project by Netherworld, the alias of Alessandro Tedeschi, founder of Glacial Movements, is purposefully very rarefied and well-inserted in the inexhaustible river going from ambient to drone music which, in its more or less isolationist branches, still enjoys a remarkable productive activity and consideration by people who don’t normally listen to this kind of music and are more and more metabolizing avant-garde electronica. In this release, the sounds, aside from their stylistic label, show coherent structures and non-conceptual qualities as well, evoking imaginary places and crystal-like and arctic (a paradox for an Italian author) atmospheres.
