Carlos M Pozo, Angbase, 1 janvier 2001Not an easy listen, and not a pleasurable listen — and I don’t mean that in a bad way…
I find it difficult to describe, let alone review this music — short snippets of sound appear and disappear in succession with a logic that is close to being random, though this being Metamkine we can be assured that it is most decidedly not. The sounds are delicate and scratchy, though they expand out into noisier zones without warning. Brief bits of noise explode out of the near-silent mix, adding to the air of confusion most musique concrète sound collage seems to induce in the listener. Like a French movie that ends just when you were beginning to think you knew were the plot was headed this CD comes to a close with a hiccupped burst of girlish laughter. Not an easy listen, and not a pleasurable listen — and I don’t mean that in a bad way — a pop song is pleasurable — this is more complex. You don’t read Wallace Stevens when you want to give your brain a rest. Likewise, you shouldn’t play this as incidental music when you’re looking for a little escapism. This CD demands concentration and work — sometimes I’m willing to play along and “work” and other times I isn’t. You make the call.
