Supersilent's Helge Sten presents three works--"Quads", "Monochrome", and "Solitude Of Sounds" by Tomasz Sikorski--dark sound works based on sampling, time stretching, and other effects, that slowly move and fascinate the listener in subtle detail and determination.
Released in: Poland
"...the Quad series consists of four fairly short (total time about 14 minutes) nuggets of electronic washes with a metallic sheen bearing embedded nuggets of brief pulsations, chilly and calm for the most part, only the last containing substantial movement and agitation (and stereo panning) as those washes acquire more the aspect of an angry wasp swarm (thought I heard a tiny snippet of the Ramayana Monkey Chant emerging now and then). "Monochrome" lives up to its title and does so well, spending its 16+ minutes inhabiting a limited, icy place with just enough closely observed variation, again with hollow-sounding electronics, to sustain interest and then some. Even as it covers quasi-similar territory, the Sikorski piece, "Solitude of Sounds", is my favorite here: cold, whistling winds funneling through brittle but resonant space. Stasis music, definitely, solidly formed and resolutely staying in one place, observing the surrounding activity, focussing the listener's attention on a thin sliver, finding a great deal therein. A tried and true strategy, very well carried out here."-Brian Olewnick, Just Outside
