Viennese Particulate MP3s

A collection of six deeply inlaid tracks, Seroton reveals Sascha Neudeck as a master of details. Just listen to how small noises are introduced above the buzzing foundation of “Stringent#3,” for example; the sounds, which range from static to bent drones to pin drops, don’t hit the ear as inherently musical, but there’s something downright tuneful about their placement and manipulation (MP3). “160 mg,” the most still entry on the album, opens with a vorpal whir of fuzz before initiating an extended decay, a slow fade in the background of which is heard myriad distant elements (MP3). The set is the latest from the con-v netlabel, at con-v.org. More on Neudeck at sascha-neudeck.com.
