Modern Exotica MP3

Kettel’s “prairieplant 2,” like much of what appears as part of the monthly free download series (aka its “MP3 Rotor”), suggests a kind of modern exotica. Its woodblock percussion and sweet single-note piano line come across like analog derivations of modern digital pop (MP3). When a plucked string section arrives, also delighting in pizzicato and reminiscent of Sunday-afternoon Aphex Twin, the result is the audio equivalent of a hand-quilted ASCII drawing.
