Bexleyheath To Dartford
far a sound research recordings go, it can sometimes result in the creation
of albums that are so bound up with theory as to disengage with the listener’s
interest. Disinformation however seem to have no such problem.
Pulsating sounds, loose loops, static shards and resonating reverberations
all converge to form compositions that straddle a digitised experimental
sound and dark droning atmosphere. Simply put this mini album encompasses
tracks that present atmospheres ranging from urgency to tranquillity.
The droning ambient track ‘Doppelganger’ is rather
interesting given that it appears to have been constructed entirely with
the manipulated reverb of a single ringing piano note. Likewise later
album pieces veer into a purely research recording methodology, where
the subtle glitches & static noise of ‘Bexleyheath to Dartford’
and ‘London Underground’ are both tracks of unmixed
magnetic-field recordings (where the location of the source material are
obvious from the titles).
Although relying heavily on a clinical and digitised medium, Disinformation’s
mini album is a sonically palatable and intriguing listen.
