8/10 Jamie Staff review, 31 May 2017

This is the kind of stuff I get to review, you see. If it’s not emotive electronica or weeping melancholy made by classical muso types, it’s art. So ‘Pose Plastique’ falls into the latter category, of course. I’m not complaining though, honestly… Musique Concrète rarely sounds this chilling or sparse.

Andrew Hargreaves (The Boats) this time around presents his first work to accompany dance. Hargreaves composed the piece to choreograph the movements of the evidently highly flexible Anaïs Ureel. The sounds on the record bend and loop to mark stark movements and shifts in space. In other words, there are plenty of echoing clangs, bloops and bleeps.

The spacious effects are floaty and surprisingly blissful. The electronic rhythmical structures are in place to underpin the sense of forward drive without a hurried thrust. ‘Suite One’ ends the first side of the green vinyl with a series of percussive pops. Upon flipping the wax over, Suite Two presents you with an altogether more ominous set of sounds: low-rumbling oscillations and slow motion clanks against industrial hum. I may bust some freeform moves to this later. In my living room. While the other half is still at work and not looking.
