8/10 Jamie Staff review, 05 April 2016
Danish Duo Vektormusik present, in true minimalist style, a set of ten excerpts from music composed for theatrical types Carte Blanche in beautiful old-but-modern Copenhagen. An infusion of drone and static-based glitch form the backbone of the work, with plinked piano and rolling and tumbling synth playing nicely o’er top.
Second track in is, of course, entitled ‘Excerpt[hashnotsupplied]6’ and is a dream of soft hazy droney loveliness that just drifts… and drifts… and lulls you into something approaching a false sense of security, saved only by the increasingly frequent static pops that will have you swearing you are listening on vinyl -- but of course it’s all emanating from the shiny new, digitally perfect format-of-the-future “Compact Disc”. It drones, it pops, it hums, it recursively loops, it enthralls throughout with barely a surprise nor a misstep.
‘Excerpt 4’ does appear to feature a cello and typewriter, but I think I’m hallucinating by now.
‘Except 3’ has a v minimal acoustic guitar figure and sounds to me like Hood being remixed by Merzbow. Did that ever happen? Well it should. There are all sorts of other warm pads and percussion bubbling up on this record and it makes me want to go home and have a nice hot bath. With “time woke up in darkness - excerpts vol 2" on in the background. Naturally.
