After a long two month stretch without any Time Released Sound in our lives, the label gets Autumnal and sneezes out the sound art excursions of K’an, better known as Paolo Bellipanni. His previous and even more niche record for Ōnyūdō took place in a glitched out netherworld where abstractions were the new classical, and this record has a similar mashed aesthetic -- it lives in a foggy landscape of thrummed chords and distorted wind tunnels, but picks up steam and builds on rhythms. It’s like he stumbled upon some sound and… manipulated it. Uncanny.
For those who enjoy their sound art and their ambience and their general thinking mass spliced into beatmaking, this record should do you a solid: it recalls recent Sphereleus records in this sense, moving between remote drone shimmers and a revolving door of melodic head-nodders: “Womb is A Perfect Place to Conspire” is one solid slog of decayed sound but it reaches into the spry piano loop of “Immure”, which keeps its listener involved via warps that sound vocalised and a throbbing set of beats that eventually stutter back into ambience.
It isn’t dance music, but Bellipanni’s music is active and exciting, suggesting industrial practices while remaining really bloody pleasant. One for fans of Haushka, Arnalds and some deeper drone buds, but with a bit more of what they call welly.
