released January 19, 2013

At twice the length of its 30-minute predecessor “Signal Kitchen” (ACR 1002), this latest album by noise artist Orifice offers some surprisingly gentle moments amongst its 13 tracks of wavetable-synth improvisations. Orifice frequently indulges in classical harmonies with a friendly analogue synth sound, only to crush them between grainy shards of oscillators in overdrive. The resulting tensions makes it possible to listen out for interesting details instead of just enjoying the sheer sonic force of the noisier parts.

Given the fact that only one instrument is used, the improvisations span a surprising variety of timbres. The sinewave-flavoured sounds of the synthesiser, recorded in a way that deliberately preserves some imperfections of the signal, sometimes resembles guitar feedback, while the repeated use of sounds with a very short attack suggests the idea of a garage-style glockenspiel. Another interesting aspect is the use of repetitive structures, noisy loops that only change rather gradually. Track 9, sounding somewhat like Darth Vader in mortal combat with a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner, is a wonderful example of this rather minimalist approach.

BAD ALCHEMY

Die 13 Wavetable-Synth-Improvisationen, die Burkhard Jäger als OORIFICE auf Pinkk Llullabies (ACR 1015, CD-R) versammelte, vexieren zwischen ihrem harmonischen Substrat und einer giftig stechenden und schneidenden Oberfläche. Oder ist es umgekehrt? Jedenfalls gibt es das Eine nicht ohne das Andere. Anklänge an Gitarre, Harmonika oder Glockenspiel werden so oszillatorenverzerrt, dass die garstigen Frequenzen als Hilfstruppen des Warlords Tinnitus erscheinen. So wie sich das anhört, brauche ich mir darüber nicht den Kopf zu zerbrechen, dafür sorgt die 'Musik' schon selbst. Diese 'Wiegenlieder' sind wohl für den Herodes in einigen von uns.
