Nozzle is Laminar's first full-length recording for Asphodel. A dense, explorative and compelling collection of contemporary DSP-concréte composed in the tradition of Xenakis' stochastic compositional methodology, Nozzle's starting point is the investigation of nonstandard synthesis routines for creating music. As a whole, Nozzle is based on iterative functional synthesis and asynchronous granular synthesis, which involves developing musical structures by manipulating interactions at the sound-particle level.

The sound textures of Nozzle move from order to disorder to outright chaotics, all the while blurring the fundamental separation of sound and structure. Periods of stability are frequently interrupted by sudden and erratic events. The musical results are hectic, explosive sound gestures alternating with dense states of slack which express the fundamental physicality of sound.. . . . .
