7/10 Mike Staff review, 21 February 2014

Get ready to stroke your beard, there's a new CD from Line in the office! This one's from Nicolas Bernier and contains a combination of sine wave drones and "a series of custom made devices in which computer-controlled solenoids activate a variety of tuning forks", it's a detailed exercise in high pitched, glassy drones in which the physical ringing of the tuning forks is played off against the electronic smoothness of the sine drones.

In places the tones are quite high pitched, but in others they're incredibly high. Really head-piercingly squeaky. And there's some weird fluttering clicks too. I'm quite surprised with how distinct the tuning forks sound from the sine wave considering that you'd think the two would sound practically identical, and the quavering interplay between the two is interesting, but those extremely high drones are not for the faint of heart and give it a cold, panicky feel. Difficult but interesting tonal music for those who like things a bit cerebral.
