8/10 Brian Staff review, 16 December 2010
No info on this person except I've discovered he's an electroacoustic producer from Montreal. The main track on this EP initially reminds me a little of an old glitch-y downtempo Planet Mu or Toytronic style track with a searching Orbital-style wibble that cuts through the tune like a longing searchlight. Then it goes all abstract and slightly dark, industrial & freeform. This is quite a truly unusual piece of music. There's the faint undercurrent of a rhythm but I think the all-enveloping frequencies & sinister monged samples whipping around your head are the main attraction. Then it gets stripped back to nothing more than a pulse, a spooky aura and a whispered female vocal before bursting into some kind of rolling synth odyssey; brooding electronics, muddied strings; insectoid chirrups and clicks amongst the many ear-caressing details. Then this expansive journey peters to an end with more glitch & whispered vocals, a lone ponderous bassline for company. There's an edited version of this epic later on and this powerful, detailed sound-art/ambient piece which reminds me strongly of Alva Noto & Jasper TX.
