Disquiet by Paul Corley

8/10 Ant 01 November 2012

This is the debut album from American composer, engineer and sound recordist. His CV looks pretty tidy as he’s previously appeared on records by Ben Frost, Valgeir Sigurðsson and Tim Hecker so clearly the man knows what he’s doing. Disquiet begins with ‘She’s In The Ground’ which has some very lovely prepared piano which is very delicate and fragile sounding, reminiscent of Morton Feldman in some ways. What’s particularly engaging though are the strange unidentifiable found and processed sounds. There’s a sound of lots of skittering fast strings that almost sounds like some sort of alarm at various points.

‘Narrow’ is a lot more intense, with big sounds sweeping in and out of the mix and has somewhat of an unnerving quality to it. ‘Dialogue And Passing Judgement’ is a mixture of soothing experimental ambient sounds, dreamy piano and lots of processed and quite original sounds hissing ticking and fizzing away. The album closes with the title track which really is a fine example of experimental contemporary classical music. It seems there are a fair few artists doing this sort of thing these days but this does stand out as being very well executed. Should appeal to fans of Machinefabriek, as well as artists on the Bedroom Community roster.
