Sehr verschiedenartiges Material fr die TRIBRYD-Ausstellung von TJ Norris, von einigen Koryphaen der elektronischen Experimental-Szene.... BEEQUEEN, ARANOS, TIETCHENS, SCANNER, ILLUSION OF SAFETY, C.RENOU aka BRUME,::ETC:

Although being a compilation of different artists, Tribryd feels like a personal album. All material was composed and produced on visual artist TJ Norris request to accompany his work. If I understand correctly, Norris will build three pieces of art - so-called installations - in three different galleries in three different countries, in direct response to the music on this disc. Pieces of art that speak to the eye (oh, and of course your heart) inspired through the ear and the title of the songs. I dont know if the nine different artists on this album - divided into three sections, the installations Genometrics, Nucleo and Infinitus - had any knowledge about the pieces beside their own, but as a soundtrack this album plays remarkably well. Its not only a coherent listen but also a good way to sense the differences between its featured artists. Beequeen comes with a luscious piece of manipulated electric and eclectic guitars that prove ground for crumbling and bouncing high-pitched noises. Humectant Interruption provides us with a piece of musique concrete, full of pulsing and scraping sounds. Illusion of Safety is your time- and tone-pitched detailed laptop noise. A lot is happening in this one, which makes one wonder how the accompanying art will work out. Other artists featured are Aranos (nervous offbeat electronic high-notes with violins, hard to listen to), M. Behrens (say small animals heard through an oxygen tent, a very touching and organic piece), Rapoon (canyon-wide ambient), Asmus Tietchens (unique high-tone ditty like only he can produce), Scanner (pulsating ambient) and C. Renou (dark ambient drone piece). [RT, Vital Weekly]
