Shapeshifter - Reticulum Flux
|CD:||out of stock|
Shapeshifter is Malcolm Goodman. Recticulum Flux is the Shapeshifter album.
The music is possessed, like a Korean skyscraper ghosted by the murder of a computer virus hacked to pieces with an Apple G3. Shapeshifter has mined some seriously dark trench in hell to provide bloodless material for this aural demon. The spirit of early-model electronic abstraction holds sway over Shapeshifter's glass tower; Ussachevsky hovers and Xenakis spooks. The inevitable exorcism happens halfway through the album, in a schism of ambient drone and human breath that stutters with a keyboard death-rattle and a low bass that nearly tears apart speaker cones. Then the poltergeist is let loose, and the album runs amok. Sound files collide and spit bits in a splinter of cellular corruption. Elongated double-helixes of noise mutate in hybrids of disorganic flow. It's all very frightening and impressive.
