This week’s great review was brought to you by Fernando Bravo!
“ms give up”
from the album “CLONED HEART: INANIMATE PLOKMA”: ready to exist
This track exists extraterrestrial, in a sea of mercury beyond common realms: a machination of vacant thoughts and nightmares conjuring multiple attached dwellings consuming audible media of differing mediums, tones and genre. An external sphere holds these contents, the ethereal device of endless knowledge bouncing the future, present and past simultaneously into one’s eardrums, a summation greater than its components.
Far off memories weave, lodging amongst greater motion of pixelated and distorted flotsam. Calling, breathing, struggling in waves of relentless bass, distant club sounds reverberant and reflective externalize the experience as ground, shaking. Repetition, its absence and presence serve the experience, its continuously adjusting beat restarting as a bugged animation whilst unintelligible autotuned pitch adjusted vocals loop casually. Messages within the audio question a connection to the earth, the legitimacy of our condition as wanderers of a land to the fabric of its facade; an auditory leak from the backrooms prying itself into one’s brain, gnawing at one’s sense of truth.
As a connection of tracks forming a trail, the release maintains and builds, as fractals snaking outward become lines of machine code hammered into hardware, warped and eroded over time. This release could be dated to anytime within the last 20 and next 100 years, not chained to any noticeable software or workflow, “deconstructed experimental club” as its classification. Representing the advancement of a pin point niche ‘ “CLONED HEART: INANIMATE PLOKMA”: ready to exist’ expresses a cursed corner of the internet, an evolution of internet genres melted and reformed, dripping from its cracks, pulsing, dusty, breathing hoarsely, clinging to being.
I recommend this track and album to clear out parties which you were not invited to, 3 a.m. walks through the construction zone that is Auckland Central and/or for your 41st hour in a row awake.
