Senko :: Dronetudes (Hymen)

A vibrant, intriguing, digital and blissed-out collection of stylish electronic minimalism on the independent Hymen Records.

Dronetudes, offered by the Denmark based sound art actor Daniel Kosenko (aka Senko), presents a vibrant, intriguing, digital and blissed-out collection of stylish electronic minimalism on the independent Hymen Records. The ensemble is surprisingly diversified and challenging, inviting the listener to navigate with an equal pleasure through weird if not spooky buzzed out droney vibes (ref. “Surrogate drone”), abstract post-techno minimalism enigmas (“Wolfsong,” “Moth”) or obsessionally cerebral as in the spiraling electronic (“Dronetude 1.”)

The sound ambiences and kinetic electronic soundscapes are quite menacing, mysterious, ambiguous and neurotically incisive. Touches of electroacoustic experiments on timbres and pitches also characterize this album (“Dronetude1”, “Dronetude2.”) Hyper-active electronic programs around pulsating motifs meet elastic drone sequences and atonality in a handful titles like in the superbly haunted, hypnagogic and tremendously rhythmical “Moth.”

An eclectic, inventive and multidimensional experimental electronic album with a discreet intellectual approach which accompanies the listener in a vast sonorous exploration. This avant-garde and engaging electronic release will seduce those who are into the paradigmatic sound spheres of Ragnar Grippe, the concrete music of Pierre Henry or Horacio Vaggione, the fuzzed-out static dronescaping inflections of Acre as well as listeners of IDM glitch-esque ambiences or brain-dancing excursions. Advised without restraint.

Dronetudes is available on Hymen.
