Machine Woman Goes to “Paris”

Sublime industrial work by Anastasia Vtorova

Machine Woman is the name under which Russian-born Anastasia Vtorova makes a pulsating range of slow industrial music. Her SoundCloud account has long-form exlorations, podcast material, and remixes. One highlight is “Paris,” which dates back two years. It’s a hard, simple piece, a range of clanks heard through thick static, the seeming routine of the motion masking a complex interplay of rhythmic grace notes. In the closing minute, the beats disappear, leaving a haunting, sullen, distant voice to fill the sizable void.
