Here comes Nino Pedone aka Shapednoise -- co-owner of labels Cosmo Rhythmatic and Repitch, and half of duo Violetshaped, alongside Francesco Baudazzi aka Violetpoison. The Italian producer is back on Type after 2015’s ‘Different Selves’ LP for the label and previous works on Opal Tapes, Russian Torrent Versions, Hospital Productions etc.
‘Deafening Chaos Serenity’ is the second limited to 300 copies, stamped white label 12” from Type in recent weeks -- the previous was from Imaginary Forces alias Basic Rhythm.
The title of the EP is fitting; the huge, heavy, in your face sound he peddles is here in droves but there’s a real juxtaposition of more tranquil, indeed serene elements. Opener/ intro ‘Motion and Death’ has tectonic plate shifting blasts of explosive sound that erupt and make way for brief glacial mournful synth that suggests the hard/soft direction of the rest of the EP.
He’s joined by Roly Porter on ‘Resistance to a Harmonious Vision’ a meticulously crafted metallic, industrial soundworld with brutal sonic bombshells. Despite the huge physicality of the sound it comes off as being somewhat graceful rather than aggressive or violent.
‘Noise Molds Bodies’ sludges along with futuristic, robotic, sci-fi sound design. Rabit joins in on ‘Pulling at the Seams of Existence’ with menacing subs and searing metallic scraping and rattling. It’s something like spending nine minutes on the production line of some future warship building factory, being sprayed with sparks and fragments of flying shrapnel until the machines cool down for the day, droning icily into the night-shift.
Closer ‘Delusional Path’ builds gently from a drawn out tone, becoming animated with complex mutating sound that’s like some part synthetic, semi organic creature coming to life and escaping from the speakers.
‘Deafening Chaos Serenity’ is quite possibly Shapednoise’s finest output to date. If you dug his last album, you probably should get your mitts on this.
