Review of Basal [12k1014]


Minimalist artists Sogar and Z.E.L.L.E. approach similar sonic constructions from divergent positions, each creating tonal textures and noise infused intricacies, that are contemplative and complex in effect. Basal is the remanipulation of found sound with the accompaniment of various instrumentation and additional processing. The sounds are natural enough to be soothing , something of an amplification of the everyday in a more concentrated arena of experimentation. Layers of melodic texturing thrive within the hums and lengthy tonal screetches, like an aesthetic restructuring of white noise.
