|[ini.itu] Freiband "Stainless Steel"
|ini.itu is releasing a new vinyl only LP, the 8th of its catalog, composed by Freiband
â€¢ Side A seems to progress through an acid bath, and take the magnifying glass to enhance the digital decays, evoking various stages of textural corrosions. Through this aggressive and irreverent treatments, the naturally metallic harmonics are by twitst and turns abruptly dismantled into crunchy, dense and fuzzy fireworks. These gutsy and intensely fractured variations on gamelan, despite the stop & go transitions still hold a nice unity across the digital errs and disturbances. Hard-edged, raw.
â€¢ on side B, through some arcane wirings, some machines end up spitting out shifting binary patterns with a somewhat alienating feeling. Proof that electronic music can be minimal and eschew the 4/4 dancefloor pattern, in favour of some dry and uncompromising â€œ Unerforschtes Gebietâ€? between minimal beats and Steve Reichâ€™ early tape compositions.
