An intense web of well-crafted algorithmic splinters where you can feel the real-time, improvisational attitude. Intricate but never unnecessarily complicated.
Amazing fresh experimental music.
Automatism is just another example of releasing extraterrestrial sound sculptures that will take years to unfold properly as Autechre tunes usually do—this time from the artist Francesco Corvi (aka Nesso). Take “Laminar Flow,” for example—its deconstructed beats and bass unfold as detuned industrial shards break apart as William Fields take the same track and remixes it into a decomposed robotic electro beauty (perhaps the finest of the lot). “Edge Condition” runs in a parallel trajectory as “Laminar Flow,” its mechanical glitch bits crumple and erode a low rumbling bass glues it together. The Richard Devine-tinged industrial bass stabs and shuffling notes of “Dataquake” are fractured beyond belief as Fausto Mercier remix gives it a hardened outer shell with blips’n bleeps galore. JFrank offers a rendition titled “Conditional Flow” where fractured post-industrial percussive shards erode and triangulate themselves. Automatism is a behemoth of an extended player—25-minutes of deformed abstract electronics with a left of center pulse.
