Atomspheric Remixes

Shinju Gumi is the name adopted by Frederic Paul, a Paris-based composer who is more than comfortable repeating a bar for the Nth time, to Zen effect, before moving forward. Mixing a Ghost (Shadow) isn’t quite a snail’s-pace affair, but this collection (largely of remixes) achieves a lovely, atmospheric effect. The remixers include Tarwater (aka Bernd Jestram and Ronald Lippok), 7-Hurtz, Solex and others. The influence of soundtrack-style drama and proto-minimalist classical music (especially Satie — there’s a substantial amount of rudimentary acoustic piano) is highly evident, but never unenjoyable or overstated.
