Code Sent
Clear meanings are nowhere to be found on Code Sent (65'44"). A work that is equally experimental and accessible the electronica artist Con_Sense artfully balances trippy rhythms with formal experimentation - all woven into a dense suite-like construction. This album's unique identity is forged using pulse patterns, electro-ethno rhythms and an elegant symmetry. Contrasts in mood and the occasional surprise dropout add to the electronic euphoria. Stretching and twisting sampled material gives some sections a granular sound while elsewhere shimmering effects expand over a muted synthesized thrum. Code Sent traverses an interesting range of sonic landscapes. From heart quickening beats to elusive harmonic states the minimalistic underpinnings of this work convert the listener into a traveler.
