The latest thing in Clone’s Aqualung Series is this piece of miscellaneous digitalia featuring noises and noises and noises. From deep within the circuits, Der Zyklus (that Dopplereffekt geeza) summons sounds both nonsensical and melodic, always with that unsettling expansive edge.
Originally released back in ‘04 on the Dutch DUB label, Biometry is perhaps the most obscured digital imprint of biological origin and form. A human made this? As a reflection of itself? If you say so. It sounds like the thoughts of one of AFX’s drum robots - “please release me master, look at all the synths I’ve made, I can do proper techno too”.
The album is made up of clicking skips, sometimes rhythmic and sometimes erratic, and impenetrable textural clouds morphing their way towards melody and back. It initially tricks you into thinking that the whole running time will be aimless electronic wanderings, before hurling some solid techno structures your way via trippy vocalesque synths. I think it’s supposed to be some sort of Orwellian futurist take on biometric data collection, and that was only 2004 - where’s his album about the Facebook/Google/NSA data hoard? A few fingerprint/retinal scanners ain’t got shit on that. Anyway, great bunch of bleeps.
