Fyre has previously released on Rene Hell’s Salon (Hell, Fyre, there’s something in that), and On Small Differences in Sensation goes as deep down the rabbit hole as that might suggest. A disorientating whirlwind of electroacoustic dubplates and sample-loops, the micro-music here coalesces into something puzzling and intriguing when taken as a whole. A booklet of accompanying texts will help the intrepid listener to shed light on proceedings.
8/10 Ant Staff review, 23 November 2016
Here’s a fine slab of wax from Minneapolis based artist Eric Frye - a record for the resolutely fearless, dauntless sonic explorers among you. This LP has been doing strange things to my brain over repeated listens. Having now heard it about five times, I feel like I’ve been subjected to some form of clinical trials/ research on how sound can alter one's spatial awareness. Unless you happen to have a deathwish - do not attempt to listen to this whilst driving.
I’ve literally no idea what’s happening on this record, other than the strange effect it has on me, and I’m too stupid to understand all the big words in the accompanying booklet. If you’ve a penchant for sonic art/ computer music and wild, mutating, pulsating, bleeping electronic sound - zinging and pinging across the stereo spectrum -- that which is often performed in stark white art spaces or installations as produced by the likes of Florian Hecker, then this is of sufficient quality to get you off. It’s the sort of record I play that makes my wife “worry about” me.
It’s like the man’s synthesizer modules are actually a bunch of micro-droid, clockwork cuckoos and crickets playing with squidgy ratchets. Great fun.
