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.
minicdr – Koyuki
Texan producer Josh Russell manages micro-sonorities, ambient electro-acoustics and audio deconstructions through the tangles of an ultra-minimalist aesthetics, which wavers between quiet clicks and rarefied as well synthetic drones. It’s the evolution of sound inspired by accidental daily events. Noises are often just filtered and subsequently assume the status of delicate miniatures, amplified micro-particles, which distill an intimate coherence. Specific laptop music paradigms are used for trills, electronic chimeras, and audio happenings. There are only two tracks in this Koyuki mini-cdr, using a technique between granular synthesis and sophisticated patterns. What emerges herefrom, are cyclical modules ordered by tone, or by more structured moments, which are dense and rich in infinitesimal juxtapositions and intricate textures.
