FORUM/Shinkei/Luigi Turra are the latest sound artists embracing and paying homage to early minimalism and bringing it into 2009 with the aptly titled 'Clean Forms' disc on LA's Dragon's Eye Recordings. Working within the reduced 'less is more' kind of aesthetic they have each contributed a track. FORUM's 'Seagram Series for Mark Rothko' is an excellent exercise in restraint allowing the mind to create a visual to the discrete detailed metallic textures and crystal drones. It's spacious yet full of possibilities. Shinkei uses near silence and distant hum combined with crackle and static on 'Nokori (for Ken Nazakawa)' and I'm transported into a microworld of tiny insect flutters and voices. This one really commands my attention and makes me feel like a particle drifting into different worlds. Luigi Turra ends with 'Aluminum Zinc' which makes me think of an amoeba doing Tai-Chi and then a big giant comes along and starts clattering about with sheet metal. I reckon headphones are the way to go with this album unless you have a room with no other audio distractions. My mind is working overtime to all three tracks here. To second the Mark Rothko reference I feel this type of sound art really is the audio equivalent. Some people will look/ hear and be like “That's a load of bollocks just a load of paint/strange noises” or on the flipside be like “Fascinating abstract stuff/This takes me places” You either feel it or you don't. Limited to 250 copies.
