Review of Somi [12k1087]

Groove (DE)

Google translate from German:
The ambient of 12K label chief Taylor Deupree is biological and evolutionary. His cross-media album Somi (12K) develops enchanting beautiful sound along random rules that unfold with mathematical rigor. Similar to biological evolution, the result of complexity is decoupled from the simple algorithmic rules of art. In this way, Deupree manages to be highly sophisticated and technological in an inimitable way, yet not giving up the claim to sonic beauty and intimacy. In addition, the combination of graphics / book and CD is beautifully designed minimalist. A fine collector’s item for old-fashioned people who still buy CDs and also maintain a certain appreciation for well-designed sounds and print products.
