[Release page] Geskia! not only create vast expanses of sound buried in textured atmospheric bubbles, but they carry a positive sense of overall well-being in their delicate fractures. Breaking away from their industrialized hip-hop experiments, Muon is simply an aura of multi-leveled abstracts that reveal subtle nuances comprised of ambience, calm and utter beauty. But just as these slivers of sparkling light radiate, one can’t help but reminisce about the parallel feelings Muon evokes next to the now classic emissions of the past decade including—but not limited to—Herrmann & Kleine’s Our Noise (Morr Music, 2002) and Arovane’s Tides (City Centre Offices, 2000). Tracks like “Abuttal” (threaded with contagious lyrical strands) and “Melamine” are nostalgic reflections of these seminal albums—crisp yet sparse percussion, brittle melodies and an evolving buildup of colorful instrumentation keeps Muon‘s flow moving right along. Elsewhere, as evident on “Lachrymose,” “Orion” and the opening “Interim,” an ever-shifting foray of hundreds of sounds lap over each other gracefully and begin to unfold several minutes into each entity. Like constantly changing cloud structures that take time to transform, Muon is the epitome of these fluffy blankets in the sky. Inspirational and filled with an abundance of peaks and valleys, Geskia! confirm that slow motion acoustic-electronics can unearth nostalgic memories if you simply let it consume your entire environment.
