Slowcream ‘Music For Paintings – Francis Bacon’

[Release page] Specialized in playful music experimentations and conceptually innovative / melodiously cinematic ambient minimalism, nonine figures among the finest references in the world of digitalized releases entirely devoted contemporary electronic music. Months ago I firstly discovered and reviewed two electronically complex digital releases coming from nonine including Rael’s Frame 4-6 and Alpha Bubbah’s Undo Undone. This new extended player by Slowcream (aka Me Raabenstein) and entitled Music For Paintings – Francis Bacon is another stylistically original and breathy timbral music universe that goes beyond any formalistic approach in electronic music experimentalism.

Music For Paintings – Francis Bacon offers a conceptual framework which puts the light on the phenomenon of discursive / symbolical interactions between movement-colored forms and sound structures. The concept is relying mostly on modern painting and especially to Francis Bacon’s emblematic aesthetic ideals. In itself and to follow this leading statement, the music of Slowcream luminously puts the emphasis on subtly moving droning sequences which liberate pronounced repetitive figures. The soundscaping amorphous qualities of this release reveal an astonishing combination between the essence of a “sound-color” and the ascetic properties of listening. The whole content is incredibly spacious, consonant, made of abstract electronic pieces which consist of endlessly magnetic droning chords, admitting micro-fluctuations and profoundly contemplative tonal properties which evoke the ecstatic grandeur of eternity. Repetition, staticity and sound morphology are the vital elements identified in those enveloping visionary ambient excursions.

A magnificent mix between minimalist droning “vertical” aesthetism and macrosonic spectrality. This one will ravish fans of tranced-out “binaural” tonal clusters by Coil (ref. Time Machines), Alvin Lucier’s Music on a long thin wire, Jacob Kirkegaard’s 4 Rooms and Andrew Chalk’s East of the sun.

Music For Paintings – Francis Bacon is available on nonine. [Release page]
