eris 136199 – Particular speeds
“Past the concepts of unlawful actions and deeds
there’s a area
We’ll meet there “
– Jalaluddin Rumi (from the linear notes)
Right here we’re within the area, all frames are lacking, the petrified guidelines of engagement are cracked and violated on the bottom dotted with items … Three masters @, three voices, with none pointers, no restrictions, no sense of “proper” or “improper” , simply sound … You’re now not in Kansas or every other earthly state, so cease the fruitless seek for conference or recognizable which means – simply hear, settle for, dissolve and enter the dream of Eris136199 …
Opener Ballad for Tensegrity (I and II) units up the wi-fi connection. Towards the background of buzzing / whining, the sign jumps and bounces, cohesion is elusive, distortion and static crackling, Sikora’s full tone erupts, chic and twisting because the tachyon guitar strikes again into the stack, stepping the opposite moans, howls, slices and shapes … It is a candy factor, this ballad.
Elsewhere (past the world?) Saar’s voice for noir-ish pays for Ariadne’s thread, main by a fancy maze of Particularly dialogue with guitar bug. Whereas in Sleeping dragon, Ariadne lingered for some time, leaving us with two sculptors concurrently repelling the identical sound block – filigree inside filigree – Mandelbrot-forward past the brink of the human ear alone.
And is it simply me, or is there one thing (barely asymmetrical) palindrome Polytely I and Polytely II: Breakdown? Anyway, it is a horrible factor. Intensely “musical” (no matter that means) and gross irritation, mild testing of Broca convolutions, seek for entry and storage factors, delicate insertion of sounds, probing for response, confusion and delight. (ie it enters your head. Proper there. I am unable to cease it.)
Throughout “Particular Speeds”, moments of magnificence swirl and dance with summary impenetrability; self-dancing trichotomy of quasi-cavities, attracting unusual … Eris136199 is an uncomfortable pleasure, a mix of uncommon components * not possible to breed within the laboratory, a brand new musical alloy, an ongoing experiment, the proper distillation of stressed listening.
“… there’s a area …” And on this area there are three voices: 1 + 1 + 1 = 1
Too incomprehensible? TL; DR? Then dive again into the ambulance notes:
“There’s a feeling that the fully sudden is by some means inevitable.”
That is in brief.
* Within the context of notion, I am rereading Dan Simmons’s Hyperion and the Fall of Hyperion proper now, and this unusual literary science fiction might be the rationale I hear three opposing however inseparable voices: human, AI, and alien. (However who’s who?)
