in 2003 I released an album on progressive form. That album is sort of out of print, so i talked with NIK of pf about releasing it on bandcamp. So here it is.
It has definitively nothing to do with my recent ambient stuff, but is a pure laptop, microsound, clicks'n'cuts (however you name it) record with some side-leanings towards more melodic sounds.
It is available as a pay what you want version, which means you can get it for free or donate whatever you feel is right.
This is, what Boomkat said about it, when it was released:
"The eagle eyed will have observed NQ's quiet appearance on the last Progressive Form sampler "Forma". Recording Syntax lives up to its name, dismantling the very processes of music making. Nils Quak is operating at the forefront of the Progressive Form credo - 'Panel' has a glorious, vulnerable melody line, swathed in the rhythmic dissembling, crackles and syncopated pops. Nils teases out from the miasma a gentle progression, there's the giant bass presence of "Nhls", almost a signature tune we imagine, which enters a central section of distortion before building again into a bright melody heard from askance, an absolute killer modulation. "Disthant" and "PlEhR" both allow Nils to show further rhythm chops, while "Juri" allows him to retreat inside a luminescent shell, waves of sound lapping against your ears. You all know the story with Progressive Form by now - pretty well all essential stuff and NQ is no different."
