Kalte MP3 Album on Stasisfield

The name Kalte is utilized by two Toronto-based musicians, Deane Hughes and Rik MacLean, who traffic in dramatic electronic sounds. Their album The Lanthanide Series, from the excellent Stasisfield netlabel, collects five instrumental tracks that are quite distinct from each other, including the opening drone of “Shallow Approach” (MP3) and the swaying noise of “Bremsstrahlung” (MP3). The pieces each have an admirably through-composed feeling, despite their evident construction from loop-based components. The result is a kind of compositional circularity, in which materials surface on a kind of schedule, even if the work as a whole has the substance of something that grows and changes over time.
