Cathode Ray Tube :: Famous Monsters (Component)

Component is now a well known label for Igloo readers. I reviewed a few releases from two of their leading projects Snowbeasts and Pattern Behavior, both recommended for fans of dark challenging releases in modern electronic / synthscaping music. Cathode Ray Tube is one interesting IDM and post-techno ambient project formed by Charles R. Terhune and previously signed by Component the last few years.

Famous Monsters is a name your price album available in digital format. It is an expanded electronic voyage through melodious spacey synth textures, spherical atmospheric sequences with occasional glitchesque experimentation. The result sounds quite like a dramatic, cinematic and discreetly lugubrous soundtrack for an imaginary metaphysical sci-movie. This is a pleasant sound excursion, gently moving with moments of haunting hypnosis. We are here at the cross of ominous dark ambient and cinematic space drone music with a fervent interest for thrilling cyber synth effects. My favorite tracks include the beautiful ethereal “Call to error” and “Deep Space Device.” The musical tendency marks a slight departure from the more abstract beat minimalism quality of albums such as Tribal Malfunctions (2014) and Urban Patterning (2015).
