Review of The Endless Change Of Colour [12k1074]

The Wire (UK)

<i>The Endless Change of Colour</i> falls into that category of tonal minimalism for which Folke Rabe’s <i>What??</i> is probably the ur-text, with incremental changes in timbre and frequency working like a sonic version of Hitchcock’s famous dolly zooms: warping your perception of foreground and background, your position and the horizon ahead. Created by splitting a single phrase from a jazz record into three distinct loops that run at different speeds, Jules – aka Martin Juhls – creates a theoretically endless phase pattern of unfolding and infolding ripples. It’s a meditative listen, but its selfconscious purity is almost antiseptic: the loops are filtered into pure tone, leaving no traces of the original source sample.
