VITAL WEEKLY

Many of the releases on Attenuation Circuit were recorded in concert, usually in their hometown Augsburg. LDX#40's first release on this label was taped September 23, 2016 and the only thing I know is this: "mainly concerned with the creation of 8 bit soundscapes & weird video worlds since 1998. Active in Frankfurt am Main as an event organizer for Xerox Exotique. Runs the media dump kunstscheisse". I am not sure if this is the complete concert, being just over 22 minutes, or that we are dealing with an edit here. The music seems to me to be all-electronic, synth based, perhaps analogue ones, lots of electronics and the sound result is dark and intense, yet also rhythmic, certainly in the opening minutes. Sometimes it is interrupted by steady blocks of white noise, piercing, high-end synth sounds. In the second half the sound goes down a bit when it comes to intensity but it remains spooky altogether. I thought all of this was very good in terms of cold and distant electronics, with the downside of it being this very short. Even when it is not really one idea, but rather two extended songs, I wonder what else he has up his sleeve and I wouldn't have minded hearing some more as part of this release.

MITHRA! TEMPLEZINE

Présenté comme un projet visuel et audio à multiples facettes LDX#40 laisse aussi une place importante à l’improvisation. D’autre part, LDX#40 se définit comme une entité en mouvement qui subit une transformation continue. Ici, avec Struggling nous sommes face à une longue piste expérimentale de plus de 20 minutes enregistrée live à Augsburg le 23/09/2016. L’atmosphère majoritaire est synthétique, futuriste et cyberpunk. Une tension s’installe par couche : une émeute se prépare entre dark ambient, noise et drone. L’équilibre entre les trois permet de construire un premier développement attractif balançant entre séquences rythmiques et sons futuristes. Struggling est à l’image de la description de LDX#40 : une piste en mouvement qui va progressivement connaître une mutation par le biais d’altérations successives pour se muer en autre chose. Plus expérimental, et plus abstrait le deuxième mouvement de Struggling – qui semble être finalement deux pistes mises bout à bout – fait cohabiter des éléments technoïdes qui s’incrustent dans un bloc dark ambient aux vibrations menaçantes. Cette seconde partie est, donc, sous le signe du contraste. Sombre, synthétique laissant une place à l’inattendu Struggling présente un travail en bien des points captivant, mais qui de par sa nature – un CDr de 22 minutes – n’atteint pas la profondeur immersive d’un album.
