8/10 Jamie Staff review, 14 November 2017
‘Wee electronic gurps’: that’s how our Tom has described this and F. Ampism’s ‘rich abilities in the field of sound-tweak’. Job done, really; ‘The Unstruck Sound Centre’ is an album of joyously playful sounds, bleeps, burbles, bloops and fizzles on a record some may call Musique Concrète / bonkers / lots of fun: it’s all of these things. There’s crystal clear sound design happening here, and it all happens pretty fast: watery marimbas overlap with plucked strings, gongs, weird percussion and deliciously bubbling electronics -- really, all manner of sounds of indiscernible provenance are all threaded into the mix. The sort of music that takes immense amounts of talent and discipline to piece together...
There’s enough here to keep you immersed for hours as your brain either tries to unpick all the ties and sources, or (as I recommend) just give up and luxuriate in a sort of sonic jacuzzi. Blorrp!
