Review of ModularGuitarFields I-VI [12k2057]

Bandcamp Daily (US)

When Swiss sound and visual artist Zimoun picks a spot, he tends to hit it hard. For his latest 12k release, this meant making six deep, devout pieces with a tenor baritone guitar, enhanced with the use of modular synth. Each of the tracks here fully burrows into its chosen range of sounds, often close to pure drone. But there is always something shimmering, vibrating, quivering, or glistening in Zimoun’s “fields,” whether they last just over a minute or beyond 15. His experience in making art installations is here too, as each piece fills a virtual space, particularly “III,” which escalates throughout its entire 13 minutes, soaring toward the sun while picking up all kinds of wind and rain along the way.
