Randomform :: Enfeld (High Grade Media)

Displaying extraterrestrial diversions, microscopic attention to detail and oblique movements, a peculiar vision of future worlds unveils itself, if somewhat subliminally. Darkened by fractured beats and moody digital-signal-processing, Enfeld releases a swarm of insects flying over the radar of experimental electronics.

Randomform The balance between technology and humanity always treads a fine line. Trying to capture personal perspectives with futuristic audio extracts akin to that of a high-budget Sci-Fi blockbuster is just exactly what Randomform (aka Romania’s architect of sound, Sorin Paun) exposes on Enfeld, his debut outing for High Grade Media. Melding sparse electronic waveforms, glitch, clips and snips all rolled into one, Randomform’s style isn’t too far off base next to musicians like Richard Devine and Access To Arasaka; as a matter of fact, they compliment each other in terms of how IDM has migrated to new terrain without losing its inspired artistic groove.

Displaying extraterrestrial diversions, microscopic attention to detail and oblique movements, a peculiar vision of future worlds unveils itself, if somewhat subliminally. Darkened by fractured beats and moody digital-signal-processing, Enfeld releases a swarm of insects flying over the radar of experimental electronics. How else could you explain this manifest of audio discoveries?

If it weren’t for artists like Randomform taking audio and visual to the next degree in terms of advancements of the genre, time would simply stand still and repeat itself. And this is where Randomform delivers; his skillful use of degenerating algorithms (similar to what Autechre did on “Gantz Graf“) exposes the rough nature of this albums ominous fascination. Artists like Brothomstates, Di:Fuse, Shapeshifter and Randomform have reshaped sounds to their ultimate breaking point and extracted the most from these atmospheric tentacles. Either way you sculpt it, Randomform’s style contains a more deformed construction. Ripping through thinned melodious tones and pealing layers of sonic debris, Enfeld displays new definitions for audio abstraction and does so with ease and control. Play this one in parallel to (the recently reviewed) Genetic Control Frequencies by FMcontrol (Crazy Language, 2011) and put a helmet on as you discover another planet.

Enfeld is out on High Grade Media. [Release page]
