Another installation in the strange and highly minimal Cube series, this one featuring a beat... of sorts. After pressing play, you hear a some gauzy synth plinks and washes rise up, and then... BOOM. Are your upstairs neighbors moving furniture? Or maybe having a caber toss? And again, about fifteen seconds later, BOOM - a muffled, hazy bass kick. Soon, a ticking, rhythmic track fades up and weaves in and out of the mix. Makes me think of being tucked into the groove of a techno record, pitched down about 98%, exploring the spaces between the beats. About an hour later, after some nice tweaks and detours, everything simply fades out. A pleasant little artifact of the modern ambient age, this. Follow the artist's advice, though, and keep this on low volume, lest those super-soft textures get all blown-out and annoying. Boom!
