Tаlоs :: ∞ (Self-Released)

As Talos displays their visual-audio skills through this inaugural release, they’ve not only balanced stunning graphical works in the form of a TDR-styled book, but have also detailed an audiometric world exposing infinite bits of electrical data.

Талос '∞'

[Release page] Keeping the delicate craft of electronic art and visual abstraction intact is Талос (pronounced Talos) with their self-released, fully-realized and first exposure in the form of a limited fifty-page graphic design booklet and five tracks presented on CD. Exploring minute fields of digital dust, crumpled electronics and ambient permutations, this duo encapsulates the microscopic rhythms of Electroton and/or Raster-Noton with a focus on tangled bits and bytes of melody. The subliminal use of static blips and cosmic drone—as evidenced on “Atomic Clocks,” the opening track—shows that Talos are not at a loss for stratospheric snips, snaps and sizzles. “The Interaction of Light with Matter,” takes a more relaxed approach, cool to the touch, it reaches far into the depths of dark electronic fluctuations, switching back and forth between brisk contours and sharp edges—shifting a storyline of motion filled with emotion. Technoid formations are extracted on “Energy Densities” as synth notes slither around 4/4 beat foundations exuding a Monolake effect. The mechanical minimalism of “Quantum Tunneling” flows in deconstructed patterns that hypnotizes in its four-minute duration. Closing off with “Superluminal Communication,” Talos steps into melancholic drones that ebb and flow through unlit corridors highlighted by slices of glitched alien vocals in its final seconds. As Talos displays their visual-audio skills through this inaugural release, they’ve not only balanced stunning graphical works in the form of a TDR-styled book, but have also detailed an audiometric world exposing infinite bits of electrical data.
