Terekke, whose work is usually heard on the banging L.I.E.S. label, here takes a meditative approach for Music From Memory. Improvisational Loops is as it claims to be: an organically-developed suite for digital synthesiser and looper. The album grew out of some yoga classes, so the music is appropriately new age tinged.

Quite the change. Since L.I.E.S. haven’t done a Lobster Theremin and created their own sub-label for snoozing yet, house savant Terekke has had to take his ambient particles over to Music from Memory. Having made something nice and meditative in ‘Plant Age’ late last year, this new record feels like a natural step towards pure, cosmic bliss for a man once at least living in lip service to dance music. ‘Improvisational Loops’ is a treat for tired ears.
It grew out of yoga classes, and if Yamaneko’s recent album of commissioned spa music wasn’t proof already, that’s cause for quiet celebration. These tracks hint at new age while ultimately giving little more than beds of deep, absorbing listening; the drones are so spaced out and cut up that moments of new age melody are little more than light bumps in the road, the plucked guitars of “wav1” sinking into the whirring texture wrapped around them.
Moments of oscillation come in “arrpfaded”, and the chords of “220+g” are a good reminder of the ways in which Terekke’s music can be structured like a dance tune -- though here, the dynamics only exist in service of a beautiful beatless mush. Overall, though, Terekke has made an absolutely seamless record of hazy pink ambient.
