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 – Hefty
Delicate experiments by Hirohito Ihara, the Japanese composer who founded Radicalfashion (maybe inspired by the exhibition bearing the same name, curated by David Toop at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2001), dilated in its piano chords and electro-acoustic structures, thanks also to traditional elements supported by measured electronic insertions. Modulating the ambient airs, full of nostalgia and sensitivity, among iterated sequences and overlaid textures, the melodies are oblique and the toy-sounds are fuzzy and dream-like, reflecting an approach which is abstract, but still present in the improvisation, which melts together several techniques and stylistic influences (the same of jazz and classical music).
