- Fowl Tapes II by Luke Fowler
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 December 2013
There’s an awful lot of ‘difficult’ music out there this week. Often with the emphasis on 'awful' - thankfully, this is an exception.
According to the information provided, Luke Fowler played in the groups Lied Music and Rude Pravo and curates the Shadazz label. He has collaborated with Jean-Luc Guionnet, Eric La Casa, Richard Youngs, Lee Patterson and Toshiya Tsunoda. I'm no musical slouch but I have heard of precisely one of those people. Where's Ant when you need him??
This is an album of ‘concrete’ synth sounds using a Serge synthesizer model. It's almost exclusively non-musical and almost impossible to accurately describe. It pulses along with a kind of low-end synth creating a bottom-end, whilst on top layers of synths are added at seemingly random. There’s never a hint of melody but some tracks reach a kind of impressively intense plateau. A bedrock of pulsing bleepy synth is joined by kosmich style lead to provide moments of almost musicality.
But, generally, this is a record for fans of truly out there experimental music. (Again, where's Ant?) Case in point: Fowler had recorded hours and hours worth of tapes which were whittled down by none other than Richards Youngs to form this cololection.
Also comes with a download code for this and the mysterious ‘Fowl Tapes Vol 1’.
